I transferred in to the MMG program after speaking with some seniors and hearing how passionate they were about all aspects of the department. I checked out the MMG website and, ironically, actually refreshed this page a bunch of times just to read others testimonials. After seeing the impressive "Where are Our Alumni" list I couldn't say no. Luckily I trusted their opinions and am now in an incredible position post-graduation. I can't imagine where I'd be without the guidance from the academic advisors and the opportunities provided to the undergrads in this department.
Karl Zahn received his undergraduate degree from Cornell University with focus in biochemistry. Before entering graduate school, he worked several years in the Doublié lab where he crystallized several complexes of the DNA polymerase from phage RB69 with DNA and nucleotides.
