Dr Ross took the winning photograph at Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS), University of Strathclyde. Dr Ross said,

“How do we protect future generations from the pain, joint destruction and premature death due to rheumatoid arthritis? In this image, my daughter Isla and I hold an X-ray of my father’s arthritic hands. I want to understand when, where, how and why arthritis is triggered. This research will hopefully enable the development of new treatments to cure or even prevent the disease starting in the first place!”

Science Snaps is a great opportunity to share your photographs of science in action around the West of Scotland. Each month a prize will be awarded for the photo of the month. The winning photos are being displayed in the shop window of Jessops on Buchanan Street and on the big screen at Glasgow Science Centre.
