The winners of the Nuffield Department on Clinical Medicine photography competition were announced earlier this week. Images were submitted in three categories: Oxford Life, Student Life and Lab Life, and an overall winner was also chosen.

Winner of the 'Lab Life' category and overall winner 

Oesteoclast© Clarence Yapp 

The overall winner of the competition for his image of oesteoclasts was Clarence Yapp. The judges were really impressed by this image and felt that it was visually striking and that it really captured the 'Endeavour, Discover, Inspire, Engage' motto of the Department. The primary function of oesteoclasts is to reabsorb bone as part of the body's way of maintaining a healthy skeletal system. The picture is a confocal microscopy image of human oesetoclasts differentiated from monocytes with the multi-nuclei in blue and actin-ring in green.
