Zebrafish play a huge role in Cancer researcher/Shofar player Len Zon’s life. With over 3000 fish tanks in his lab, he has one of the largest aquaria in the world.

Len’s laboratory has worked on the zebrafish as a model for human disease, with great results (see our “Fishing for Answers” video).

Here is last year’s annual lab picture, where the group pays homage to the zebrafish. “I am pround of this group,” says Len. “We added stripes to the picture this year.”

“Here I am as first trumpet in the high school band,” says Len. “I love playing trumpet, and it is a big part of my life. I play first trumpet in the Longwood Symphony.”
