Len Zon, MD, is known world-wide as the director of the Stem Cell Research Program at Children’s Hospital Boston. His use of zebrafish models for research into hematopoiesis and as screens for oncogenic genes and proteins has been featured in forums ranging from The Scientist to Jay Leno’s Tonight Show monologue.
