Greg Burcham BS '91 psychobio

After UCLA, I lived with the 3 greatest people/friends/Bruins ever in a house near the Marina and worked for a year at Cedars-Sinai in the transplant research lab. Each day, I'd set up experiments in the morning, have a Tommy Burger for lunch at State Beach, then finish experiments in the afternoon - life was good. Then I foolishly went into exile in Houston at Baylor College of Medicine, and landed in Denver for internship, residency, and a job as an ER doc. It's great here, but I miss the beach every day. I have an awesome wife (aerospace engr, MIT grad with a MS from...uhhh...$c) and 2 great kids. We need to restart the alumni club here! email anytime.
