For USC Stem Cell researcher Leonardo Morsut, the word “set” refers to a collection of scientific data. “Set” is also the prelude to spiking a volleyball over the net—something he used to do for a living as a professional athlete in Italy.
“In my mind, professional volleyball was always a side project,” said Morsut, who played for seven years for the professional teams in his hometown of Padova and in Trentino. “It was science that was the main thing.”
