Mystery Lab Contest - Day 1

This week on New Voices we'll be sharing images of research submitted by readers. Help your fellow researchers win the contest by guessing what type of research is being done based on the image below.
You can submit your entry into the Mystery Lab Contest by emailing an image to hbenson at researchamerica.org. If we receive more submissions than we have room for in the competition, those images will be considered for our Images from Around the Lab series.
