Jacob Shreve (BS Biology '09; MS Entomology '12) has been accepted in Indiana University's School of Medicine and will begin their MD program in the fall. Jacob studied under Rich Shukle and attributes much of his success to Dr. Shukle's guidance.
Jacob relates, "I'm not quite sure about specializations yet, but whatever I do will likely have ways to involve genome sequencing. I've been corresponding with a professor of neurosurgery at IU about getting sponsorship for a summer research program, and he already has genomic data that needs analysis, so a surgery specilaization is definitely something I will be considering. I'm also really interested in using genomic screening in preventative medicine, so I'll just have to see where that takes me."
Congratulations to Jacob!!
