CU Boulder alumnus Mike McAtee wasn’t particularly interested in science as a high school student at Columbine High School. In fact, he reluctantly enrolled in chemistry his junior year only because he knew his preferred colleges would expect science courses on his transcript.
More than 30 years later, McAtee credits that class, and the dutiful instruction of teacher Wayne Vargo, for setting him on the path to success as a chemical engineer.

Advancing the boundaries of biomedical science requires a broad skillset. To make appreciable advances, medical scientists must have an intimate knowledge of how a body functions and be able to run a mechanism-based research lab. More and more students are turning to MD/PhD programs to blend these skills.
Balaji Sridhar, an MD/PhD student in the University of Colorado School of Medicine’s Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP), is one of these students.
