When she’s not engrossed in engineering proteins, neuroscientist Ashley Smart, PhD ’17, spends her time painting and drawing. One day, she noticed that the beams and supports of the Bay Bridge look astonishingly like neurons. Her vision came to life in this illustration, with the bridge transformed into a neuronal network and neurons also filling the city’s buildings. “Science and art both let me explore the world and share the wonder of how life works,” Smart says.
