“I love studying developmental biology and all its implications. It has enriched my life in many ways beyond my job. There is so much beauty in the field for me, and I get so excited when I learn about these biological mechanismsI would study them even if they werent part of my career. Knowing that it can have a tangible impact on children makes it worthwhile.”
