Science magazine has written a two-page profile of Zack Booth Simpson, a research scientist in the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology (ICMB).
The story details Simpson’s unusual entry into academic science and his contributions to the laboratories of professors Edward Marcotte, Andy Ellington and Ken Johnson in ICMB and John Davis in electrical and computer engineering. He was involved with the bacterial photography project that appeared in the journal Nature in 2005.
Besides working in the ICMB, Simpson, 38, is involved with Mine Control, which develops interactive exhibits mostly for science and children’s museums.
