Biology and theater students performed a series of intricate dances to demonstrate what happens when cells divide during the performance Movement under the Microscope in the fall.
The performance was a collaboration led by Morgan DeSantis, assistant professor of molecular, cellular, and developmental biology (MCDB); Tzveta Kassabova, assistant professor of music, theatre, and dance; and Jade Marks, science communication manager at the U-M Museum of Natural History.
Performers included the three pictured, from DeSantis’s MCDB class: Sanjana Kumar, Sahita Manda, and Vaishnavi Krishnan.
“We hope to provide a window into what is possible when scientists and artists work together and embrace different ways of knowing,” Marks said in introducing the performance.
“Receiving an LSA scholarship was the life-changing sign I needed that I truly belonged and would be valued at the University of Michigan.”
