As I peer into the microscope to catch a glimpse of neuroblastoma cells growing in my Petri dish, I glance down at my notes. There, a combination of numbers and letters spell out the reasoning behind my experiments. There, chemistry and biology meet and harmonize, allowing me to combine different areas of science into cellular biology research. This interdisciplinary approach to studying science is one that Kathrin Jansen, the Senior Vice President of Vaccine Research and Early Development at Pfizer, is well acquainted with. Jansen, a prominent researcher living in New Jersey, inspires me and my pursuits in science; she is undeterred by challenges faced as a female scientific researcher and values analyzing scientific problems from different perspectives.
