Labmates Snag Top Honors in Scientific Images Contest

Radha Boya and Keith Brown have more in common than winning images in the 2013 Scientific Images Contest. They are also both postdoctoral fellows in Chad Mirkin’s research group.

This is not the first time two scientists from the same lab have placed in the contest. Andrew Koltonow and Mark McClendon, both from the Stupp group, took home first and third place prizes, respectively, in 2012. But, this is the first time labmates have earned the top two spots, with Boya nabbing first place and Brown tying for second.
