Dr. Joe Wahle, pictured at his reception with Cancer Biology Program Director Ken Wright, defended his dissertation on October 19, 2007. Dr. Wahle initially joined the lab of Dr. Wayne Yokoyama, National Academy of Sciences Fellow, Washington University, St. Louis. He then became a scientist at Novo Nordisk in Seattle and is currently a Senior Principal Scientist at Boehringer Ingelheim.
