Elizabeth Curtin, B.S. 1997

Litigation Partner, Sidley Austin LLP – Chicago, IL

1997 Major: Biology and Environmental Science and Policy

How has being a Biology graduate from Duke helped shape you personally and/or professionally?

"I am a litigator in the medical device and pharmaceutical space, which requires science and medicine to prove injury and causation. My experience as a biology major at Duke made me conversant in medical and technical subjects."

What advice would you give students in Duke's Biology programs? 

"Think outside the box — nor everyone who likes biology has to be a doctor or work in a lab. Think about all of your skills, and how your interest in biology interfaces with them."
