When I joined my new graduate school lab, I promised my new PI that I would develop a website.  As part of that, I helped develop a Research Group name and a website design.  I created this image as a basis for a website design.

The background is that there is a professor that talks often about complex diseases.  We understand very little about complex diseases, and she likened this to the tip of the iceberg that lies above the water, while all we need to learn lies beneath.  As an homage to this idea, I created this image, where our research represents diving into the water and discovering what lies beneath the tip of the iceberg.
