Making discoveries in the lab and dance studio

What do zebrafish and dance in the 1940s have in common? Both have been the objects of research by University of Iowa student Mikaela Mallin.

Biomedical sciences and dance at first glance may seem to have little to do with each other. But Mikaela Mallin, who will graduate from the University of Iowa with degrees in both, sees plenty of connections.

The Cedar Falls, Iowa, native will graduate in May 2019 with a double major in biomedical sciences and dance. Mallin says the two disciplines have more in common than you might think.
