Welcome to our new column where fellows can share fun pictures of “life outside lab” with the NICHD community. If you have a picture that you’d like to submit to the newsletter, please email it to Shana Spindler at Shana.Spindler@gmail.com with a short caption in the body of the email. This month, we have an exhilarating submission by Dr. Jana M. Kainerstorfer. It’s good to know that your hair can still stand on end even in the water!
Jana is a postdoctoral fellow in the Section on Analytical and Functional Biophotonics. Her research is focused on non-invasive optical imaging technologies for tissue characterization. When not working on technology development, she enjoys scuba diving. Her recent adventure was diving in the Bahamas with docents of wild living sharks, who were fed and luckily didn’t show any interest in the divers.
