A movie of microtubules and actin in a human cell, that I recorded when I was a postdoc in the Wittmann lab at UCSF, won the 3rd place at the ASCB GFP-25 Imaging Contest in Dec 2019 (which was organized to celebrate the 25th anniversary of GFP as a fluorescent marker in cell biology). The video was highlighted on the NIH director's blog!

And here are some other links to videos I submitted to microscopy video contests:
