I shot this image of Ann Morris from the University of Kentucky in Berlin a couple of years ago at the ISER 2012 meeting.  Ann studies the zebrafish (Danio rerio).  In particular, she studies the ability of zebrafish retinas to regenerate following retinal injury or damage.  Retinal regeneration is an interesting phenomenon that mammalians seem to lack and yet zebrafish manage to do this despite having a retina that in many ways is far more complex than the mammalian retina.

This image originally appeared in Webvision with a movie interview of her here.
