Biology Week: Bio-bodies Bake Off Public Vote

Congratulations to Abigayle Driscoll the winner of our Bio Bodies Bake-off!

Keep updated on upcoming Physiology Friday activities at 

In the lead up to biology week we set you a challenge! We wanted you to celebrate the science of life by creating your own physiology bakes, and you didn't let us down! We were overwhelmed with entries, so we've had to whittle the cakes down for our public vote, but you can find some of the rest of our fantastic entries on our Facebook page and on Twitter with the handle #Biobakes.

Entries were shortlisted by Ellen Dowell, Public Engagement Officer at Imperial College London, and curator of Einstein's Garden at Greenman Festival; Holly Rogers, Communications Officer at the Academy of Medical Sciences and Chair of Science London, and Christine Carr, Events Manager at The Physiological Society.

Thanks to everyone who took part, if you didn't have time to bake, then here's your chance to get involved. 

Vote for your favourite cake below! (It's hard we know!) (Click for bigger images)

Voting will close at 2pm on Physiology Friday (Friday 17 October)! Winners will be annouced at 5pm.
