9726 Verbiscer           Discovered 1981 Mar. 2 by S. J. Bus at Siding Spring.
Anne J. Verbiscer (b. 1964) is an associate research professor at the University of Virginia who studies the photometric scattering properties of asteroids and icy surfaces, leading to a new understanding of Saturn's large-scale ring structure and evolutionary processes for icy satellite surfaces.
