Anne Gulycz (2005) is working for Apptec Laboratory Services and working on her Masters in Biology at Villanova.

Marie Kozo (2005) is starting her second semester at the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School. She also just got engaged to her Australian boyfriend (now fiancé) Vaughan, so her life is doubtless going to be one of mellow relaxation for the near future.

Tara Kiss (2005) is working in the Biochemical Methods Platform in the Analytical Sciences & Assay Development department at sanofi pasteur, "the largest company in the world devoted entirely to human vaccines."

John Loughney (2005) is a Biochemist in the Clinical Development Laboratory at Merck & Co., Inc.

Renee Balliet (2004) is in her third year of graduate school at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Renee is working toward her Ph.D. in Genetics in the lab of Dr. Phlip Lazarus at the Penn State Cancer Institute, where she is studying a family of enzymes responsible for detoxification of harmful substances in the body.

Nicole Sabaliauskas (2004) is pursuing her Ph.D. at the Center for Neural Science at New York University.

Megan Zeigler (2004) is in veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania. Knowing that I couldn't come up with anything nearly as interesting as what's really going on in her life, she told me that "you're welcome to add anything you like." But beyond the fact that she apparently isn't studying enough, I'm stumped.

Amrita de Zoysa (2003) has completed two years of medical school at King's College London School of Medicine and has transferred to Ross University School of Medicine to complete her studies.

Alyson Dobracki (2003) is finishing up at PCOM and getting ready to embark on a residency at Crozer in internal medicine.

Steph Gervasi (2003) is writing her Masters thesis in Johannes Foufopoulos's lab at the University of Michigan. She's busy "exposing amphibians to variable desiccation regimes to get a phenotypically plastic developmental response, and then looking for evidence of a life history tradeoff, between accelerated development and cellular immune system responsiveness."

Nicole Grube (2003) is in her third year of medical school at PCOM, currently enjoying her rotations in surgery and internal medicine.

John Blake (2002) has just started in a position with the New York City Office of Chief Medical Examiner.
