Edinburgh Student Wins Prize in Picture Competition


Brain scientists submitted images, captured in the course of their research, to the Picturing Parkinson’s competition, established by Parkinson’s UK in the memory of Dr Jonathan Stevens, a scientist who died from the disease at the age of 34 last December. In second place were the bright colours of ‘Waterlilies’, by Nicola Drummond, who is a research student in Tilo Kunath’s group at the MRC Centre for Regenerative Medicine at the University of Edinburgh .  In fact the picture shows the build-up within the brain of the protein alpha-synuclein which is thought to play a role in the death of nerve cells in Parkinson’s.
