As I am launching into my own career as an infectious disease specialist, I look back on my training with Dr. Anstead and know that I could not have had better preparation in becoming an astute practitioner. Most of all, I have learned that to be a great doctor, I can follow the example that Dr. Anstead set for me: listen like a friend, learn like a scholar and always have a sense of humor.

Dr. Dong shows great interest in the personal growth of the individuals in her lab. Her teaching experiences in the classroom reflect her sincere dedication to the education and development of her students. She highly encourages people to walk into her office whenever necessary for discussions, which have been critical to my development from student to scientist.
