  Getting Personal about Medicine
The emergence of personalized medicine—the concept that information about a patient’s gene expression profile can be used to tailor medical care to that individual’s needs—is more than just a novel idea. While the research is in full swing at Maryland, personalized medicine is already incorporated into curriculum and is making its way into clinical practice.

Divergent Pathways
Two late Maryland alumni actively involved in caring for world-class athletes would have celebrated milestone reunions this spring. George E. Bennett, class of 1909, is generally regarded as the father of modern sports medicine. The other, John B. Ziegler, class of 1949, is gaining notoriety as the father of the American anabolic steroids movement.

Kramer’s Collection

One visit to Morton D. Kramer’s house, and you get a sense for his passion: collecting. There are vintage cast iron toy banks, antique slot machines, Winchester rifles, and fire crackers. But the prized possession of this retired neurologist is a priceless assortment of hand-carved wooden duck and goose decoys.
