Wellcome Image Awards 2009

As if you needed another reason to go to the Wellcome Collection on Euston Road, here are 20 more. The Wellcome Image Awards, now in their tenth year, celebrate medical imagery. This years set of winners are particularly varied. Along side photos of a Nobel Prize winner, a premature baby clutching a teddy bear and a Tibetan doctor holding his precious medical texts, you'll find electron microscopy pics of tiny cellular structures, and a remarkable three-dimensional video of an embryotic mouse. This stunning exhibition opens today, runs through to spring, and can be found on the first floor in a dedicated gallery. Downstairs, the Exquisite Bodies exhibition closes on Sunday. Both highly recommended.
