Meet molecular biologist Janet Iwasa in this video profile from NOVA’s “The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers.” Janet, who studies the actin cytoskeleton, is also a computer animator. Using techniques from Hollywood movies, Janet has developed award-winning illustrations and animations of biological research that have been featured in the scientific journal Nature, The New York Times, and the Museum of Science, Boston. Her hope is to create more accurate models to support research and better communicate ideas. This resource is part of the NOVA: Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers Collection.
