Nanotechnology? These Researchers Are Under 5’2”

Aspinwall, C., Narayanan, S., Graham, L. et al

Nanotech just could NOT get any cuter! Meet this team of tiny lil researchers, who are all so itty bitty that they got automatic acceptance into the Nanotechnology program!

Kendra, 4’11.75”

Just shy of five feet tall (even after her mother made the doctor measure again), this adorable little researcher needs to sit on a phone book to reach the microscope!

Ainsley 4’8”

Ainsley, a stickler for safety, always wears custom cement boots while working in the fume hood, saying the ventilation is surprisingly powerful! 

Taylor, 5’0”

Fiercely independent, when they run out of sodium hydroxide they simply rock climb to the reagent shelf with a spool of parafilm!

Tzipporah (4’10”)

After someone permanently “borrowed” the lab’s step stool, Her Tzipporah’s lab mates chipped in and bought her a mini submarine scope so she can see over the bench again! 

Joe (5’1”)

Ever resourceful, thirsty Joe sometimes drinks water out of PCR tubes because he can’t reach the water fountain! 

Emma (6 inches)

Emma has to be extra careful around her clumsy undergrad students; if they spill a sample on the lab bench, Emma starts to drown!
