News posts

Whether Museum scientists are studying parasites, people, or planets in other solar systems, cutting-edge imaging technologies such as infrared photography, scanning electron microscopes, and CT scanners now make it possible to examine details that were previously unobservable. A new exhibition, Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies, features more than 20 sets of large-format images that showcase the wide range of research being conducted at the Museum as well as how various optical tools are used in scientific studies.

On Thursday, July 7, the Museum’s Tumblr and Twitter followers are invited to a special after-hours viewing of the exhibition, including visits to cutting-edge research labs, the opportunity to meet Museum scientists, and more. Visit the application page to find out more about the event and sign up for your chance to attend.

Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies is curated by Mark Siddall, curator in the Division of Invertebrate Zoology, and will be on exhibit at the Museum starting on June 25.
