In April, the NIH Public Information Officers (PIO) Network asked NIH-funded institutions to submit scientific images for display in the NIH Image Gallery on Flickr. The network selected the best photos and posted them to the gallery.

The gallery was launched last fall to share free-to-use images with the public, educational institutions and the media. The gallery features scientific, biomedical and disease-related images as well as photos of NIH leadership, labs, buildings and major historical events, infographics and B-roll [video of general interest]. 

Twenty-four institutions submitted more than 50 images to the PIO Network. The entries can be found at
