How has being a Biology graduate from Duke helped shape your professional success?

"Understanding of the mechanism of action for medications and for underlying diseases."

What advice would you give students in Biology?

"Study hard and look at possible careers (ie, what is out there, what it takes to get there, etc) so that you can make intentional decisions as an undergrad. Also, try to find a mentor at Duke in your major. This person can help you find a job after school or give you career advice."
