Description New medicines are very challenging to discover, but they may lay in waiting in the least expected places. This image shows Aspergillus Fungi, otherwise known as common bread mold. Scientists at Northwestern University study organisms like this to come up with new breakthroughs in the field of drug discovery.
These images stem from cutting-edge research on campus, winning our annual Scientific Images Contest which goes on display in galleries across Chicago.
Through partnerships with schools and community groups, we train Northwestern researchers to share their expertise and creativity in a community centered way. Sales from these images goes to support our education and outreach activities, connecting researchers to the wider community.
