Last year, we were amazed by the amount of great applications sent in by undergraduate students from across the globe. In our efforts to encourage science education, we are re-launching the Scientist of Tomorrow microscopy contest this year. Check out the amazing entries of last year’s competition and a sneak peek behind the scenes.

Are you interested in Cell Biology? Would you like to work with a revolutionary 3D microscope to explore living cells this summer? Do you dream of visiting Switzerland?
Nanolive is inviting Undergraduate students from all over the world to submit a proposal to win a one-week trip to our headquarters in Lausanne in July (dates subject to discussion). The winner will get a chance to work alongside our scientists and use our cutting-edge 3D Cell Explorer microscope to explore living cells in 3D. Visit this page to see all the amazing applications you can use the 3D Cell Explorer for: www.nanolive.ch/applications.
Don’t wait for too long for this opportunity!
