The RMS congratulate Jen McGaley of the University of Cambridge, who received both the Chris Hawes Poster Prize Award and the Image Competition Prize at the Botanical Microscopy Meeting 2023 - held at the John Innes Centre (6-12 April).

Jen's winning poster was titled Spatiotemporal dynamics of nutrient exchange during arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis, while her winning image, titled Live view of a concealed symbiosis, revealed the intricacies of an arbuscule inside a living rice root.

Congratulations also go to Ana Romina Fox of UCLouvain, who was the runner-up in the Poster Competition, with her poster titled PIP aquaporin interactions at the reticulum endoplasmic-plasma membrane interphase.

The 12th Botanical Microscopy Meeting, the latest in a long running series of RMS sponsored meetings, encompassed all aspects of bioimaging relating to modern plant cell biology and included six scientific sessions, offered talks and a poster session on the Monday evening.

Topics covered a mix of the latest approaches in microscopy combined with developments in plant cell biology, including morphogenesis, plant membranes, organelle dynamics, plant-microbe interactions as well as quantitative imaging and image analysis. A three day exhibition also ran alongside the event.
