Sabin President Dr. Peter Hotez shares one of his happiest moments from his early 20's, and how that moment influenced his life and career.
"One of the happiest memories from my early 20s was returning on the train from New York on a winter evening in 1980. Earlier that day, I had just met Professor Anthony Cerami, one of the youngest full professors at Rockefeller University and head of the Laboratory of Medical Biochemistry. I had just interviewed for the MD/PhD biomedical scientist training program at Rockefeller and Cornell Universities and was headed back to New Haven, Connecticut, where I was a Yale undergraduate senior major in molecular biophysics and biochemistry."
