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

"My time in the Biology department, especially spending time at the Marine Lab, laid the foundation for a career in marine biology, ocean conservation and environmental sustainability."

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

"Biology is not all about Pre-Med :^) There are scores of amazing professors and research going on throughout the department and across the wider University community. Take advantage of it, meet some grad students, take a 400-level course or two, spend a summer in Beaufort or working in a lab. You won't regret it."
