This year's end of year celebration was attended by over 50 members of our PREP/IMSD/Carver family! Dr. Bianca Baker ( Senior Medical Science Liason, Johnson & Johnson, IMSD alum-Liwu Li Lab) was the keynote speaker. Dr. Baker was part of VT - PREP 4th Cohort. She went on to pursue a PhD in Immunology at Virginia Tech. Later on she joined VCU as a Postdoc Research Fellow and after that she joined Virginia Union University as a Postdoc Teaching Fellow. Now Dr. Baker works as a Senior Medical Science Liaison @ Johnson and Johnson. Dr. Baker's advice for our scholars was: "Be honest. Make sure the company you work for is a good fit for you and do not be afraid to apply for jobs if you do not meet all their qualifications. We all have to start somewhere." 
A few Carver and PREP/IMSD scholars also gave speeches.
