Abstract: In 2001, American developmental biologist Nadia Rosenthal embarked on an adventure: She moved abroad to head the European Molecular Biology Laboratory's mouse research campus in Monterotondo, Italy. The center studies the rodent to understand human diseases and uncover, among other things, strategies for regenerative medicine. As a child, Rosenthal had a passion for art; but after noticing nature's recurring designs in shells, plants, and animals, she decided to study the biology of pattern formation. Her research focuses on the genetics of skeletal muscle and heart development, and on muscle aging and regeneration. In her spare time, she creates artwork with scientific themes.
