Entries are welcomed from scientists using the IN Cell Analyzer 1000, 2000 or 3000. Entries will be reviewed by an expert scientific panel comprising Dr. Joe Trask, Head of Cellular Imaging Core at Hamner Institutes of Health Services, Dr. Nick Thomas, Principal Scientist, Cell Technologies, GE Healthcare and Dr. Patrick Lo, Associate Editor, BioTechniques.
The HCA Award will be presented to the author of the winning entry during one of the following conferences; ASCB 2010, Neuroscience 2010, CHI HCA 2011, SBS 2011, or AACR 2011. The winner will also have an opportunity to present a poster based on their work.
