153298 Paulmyers           Discovered 2001 Mar. 29 by D. Healy at Junk Bond Observatory.
Paul Myers (b. 1957), associate professor of biology at the University of Minnesota, Morris, was among the first to study zebrafish as models for evolution and human development. As author of the blog Pharyngula and through public appearances and debates, he educates the public about evolution and science.
