Daniel Rathbun has joined the LFHCfS – The Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists. He says:
“They’ll never let you have long hair in the real world. You’ll never get a real job looking like a hippy.” I was told in small-town Texas. Well I showed them! I showed them all!!! —especially the blind patients whose visual prostheses I help to develop. (The young me is shown in this photo flanked by inspirations and Nobel Laureates David Hubel and Torsten Wiesel.) Now I now apply my talents to bionic vision and inspiring future generations of luxuriantly coiffed young scientists.
