Post Card from Duke's BioCoRE:

Dr.Mackey, as he has done the last three years, led the VT delegation that included PREP trainees and a Biochemistry student to this wonderful regional IMSD symposium. Presentation and discussion topics ranged from factors considered in graduate admission, lack of diversity in the faculty ranks, and NAS' recommendations for Graduate Education. 

Among participants were PREP Alum, current Duke PhD student, Chrystal Kennedy (Jake Tu) and Dr. Joe Freeman, mentor to recent MAPRS Distinguished PREP Alum winner, Dr. Brittany Taylor and to Drs. Emmanuel  Ekueweme & Albert Kwansa (PREP & IMSD respectively).
