Summer 2016 – Kris Saha

Diaper Duty, Madison, WI

Kris Saha

Kris Saha (BIONATES) was recently awarded the EAGER project and the MIRA award. His biggest accomplishment was outside the lab–nurturing his newly expanded family.

In his words: “My summer ‘vacation’ was spent caring for our new baby, Ruby! She was born on May 22, 2016, weighing in at 7 lbs 8 oz. As an aside, it was precisely one week before an important grant deadline (we submitted the grant on the deadline, and it was funded!). We were also kept busy by her older sister, Mackenzie – age 4, who had a packed summer with soccer, science camp and swimming. Overall, it was a great summer, bonding as a family of four.”
