Co-author Scott Halstead ’96 reports, “Right now I’m trying to wrap up my Ph.D. in immunology, specifically working on costimulation requirements for CD8+ T cells. I’m in my fifth year of the combined program and should return to medicine for my ‘third and fourth year’ rotations in July. I attend MCP Hahnemann School of Medicine (soon we will be merging with Drexel and will become MCP Hahnemann SOM of Drexel University).”
