Antonym: see myopic Kristen’s love of science and curiosity for the brain started at a young age. Her first science fair project was the ambitiously titled, “Does Sight Affect Taste Perception?” It involved pudding and food coloring – and may or may not have had major experimental design flaws. She’s a recently-minted PhD studying neuroscience at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in the lab of Bo Li and will soon begin her post doc at UC Berkeley in the lab of Linda Wilbrecht.
