Tales from Grad School: Making the Transition to a Post-baccalaureate Education

GW Douglas, B.S., Doctoral Candidate
Departments of Surgery and Biochemistry & Molecular Genetics
University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC)

Mr. Douglas graduated from the Department of Biological Sciences at Western Illinois University in May 2005. He is currently pursuing the degrees of M.D. and Ph.D. at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His research has resulted in multiple peer-reviewed publications and presentations at professional conferences. In addition, he is an active member of several professional societies, including the American Physician Scientists Association (APSA), American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), and American Chemical Society (ACS). His excellent performance can be attributed to his active participation in undergraduate research while at WIU. Mr. Douglas received an Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Activity Grant from the College of Arts & Sciences, and conducted his undergraduate research with Drs. Jenq-Kuen (Jack) Huang, Lisa Wen, Richard Musser and Jeff Engel. The topic of Mr. Douglas’s seminar will be to inform and encourage students seeking to attend graduate or medical schools, with his own research being discussed in brief.

This seminar is sponsored by Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Undergraduate Networking Club and Chemistry Club.
