A magazine for alumni & friends
Scientists refute stereotypes
Dylan Burdette, a 2005 Bluffton graduate in pre-medicine and biology, was named among Future-ish
magazine's 20 most stylish male scientists of 2012, based upon his convergent interests in
science, motorcycles and music (see separate story). But Burdette is not the only
Bluffton alumnus trained and working in the sciences who, playing against popular stereotypes,
has cultivated other interesting pursuits as well. The graduates whose stories follow are
among the alumni doing just that.
