News and photo from alumna Lizhen Yan
Lizhen Yan (Ph.D. 1997) is a clinical research specialist at Merck in Rahway, New Jersey. On April 29, 2007, she ran her first half marathon, then on Nov 04, 2007, she ran the New York City's full marathon (see picture of Lizhen, her husband and ETOX alumnus Guoqiang Jiang and their child). She writes that starting the running of a marathon in middle 40s has completely changed her mind-set of what a person can do. She is currently the Rahway Chapter Chair for Merck's Asian Pacific Network and is an executive board member of Merck's Toastmasters Club. Recently (May, 2008), she was voted as Merck's most amazing woman. Our congratulations to Lizhen for these impressive achievements!
