Welcome to the European Association for Cancer Research
Europe’s membership association for cancer researchers

Image of the Month

The European Association for Cancer Research is pleased to announce our new Image of the Month, to be published on our website and shared by email with our community of 10,000+ members.

What is the Image of the Month?

The intention is to publish outstanding scientific images from EACR members and peers. Microscopes, staining tools and other technology are enabling researchers to capture images that are not only scientifically illuminating, but also fascinating and even beautiful to observe.

We aim for the Image of the Month to promote the research of EACR members, as well as encourage discussion and the exchange of ideas within the EACR community. Click here to see the previous winners.

What sort of images are you looking for?

Any image of your research that you believe is interesting, illuminating or beautiful! For some excellent examples of scientific photography, take a look at the British Society for Cell Biology's annual Image Competition.

How can I submit my image?

We invite all EACR members and peers to submit their cancer research images for possible publication. 

  • Images should be high quality and resolution
  • A caption of no more than 100 words should briefly describe what is in the image, and its significance. You can also include your affiliation, lab website or contact details if you'd like them to be published.
  • Please specify the name of the photographer, who gives permission for the image to be published by the EACR, and confirm that there are no restrictions to its use. Please indicate the photographer’s name, email address, institute, city and country. Copyright for each image will be retained by the photographer and will not be transferred to the EACR.

Please submit your image and caption as attachments in an email to Claire Sullivan, The EACR will select the best images from those received for publication.
