Research Snapshots

In 2018, the MBI launched Research Snapshots, a feature highlighting recent discoveries made by MBI researchers.

Research Snapshots pair an impactful image from work in a researcher’s laboratory — often associated with a newly published manuscript — with a brief description of what the image represents and how it has impacted the researcher’s field of study. Research Snapshots aim to make research discoveries more accessible for other scientists and the community as a whole.

If you are an MBI researcher and would like to have your research considered for this feature, please contact Todd Taylor, MBI assistant director of communications.
