Participating in Biocore was a very memorable and enjoyable experience for me. The courses solidified my love for Biology. I went on to medical school and become a clinical and biochemical geneticist. I particularly remember Wayne Becker’s lectures and his book. His lectures were among the best I’ve ever heard and the book was a gem. I’ve kept his book, ‘Energy and the Living Cell. all this time. Recently my son was participating in science bowl and asked if I had any biology books he could look at. I loaned him that book; he loved it! Thanks to all the professors and TA’s who helped me learn Biology in Biocore. I also made some wonderful friends in Biocore, some of whom I’m still in touch with despite living out of state for most of my life past college.
