The Brain Observatory website wins the 2011 Labby Multimedia Awards!
From the judges' comments
Jacopo Annese, creator and director of The Brain Observatory, envisioned the website as “the brain’s Hubble telescope.” Through photographs, videos, and live-streaming feeds of daily lab activities, the site provides unprecedented views of brains and ongoing research with the goal of mapping brain structures to diagnose disease and target treatment. “You won’t find stock photography here, least of all fake researchers in immaculate lab coats smiling vacuously at a urine sample in a test tube,” he says.
Kirby: The production qualities for this web site are amazing. Navigation was easy and links were usefully tagged. It is hard to say a web page about a brain tumor could be fun, but I enjoyed looking at all the different categories on the site. Sanford: The visual aspects of this site are eye candy that highlight the brain as a very appealing organ to investigate.
