    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Aug. 1, 2012) – Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences’ College of Biosciences conferred the master of arts and master of science degrees on 39 graduates during its seventh commencement ceremony on Tuesday, July 31, in Weaver Auditorium on the KCUMB campus.

    H. Danny Weaver, D.O., FACOFP, president and chief executive officer, presided over the ceremony.

    Petr Jarolim, M.D., Ph.D., medical director of clinical chemistry and laboratory control at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, delivered the keynote address.

    In a message that struck a balance between optimism and caution, Dr. Jarolim offered graduates his advice on pursuing a career that will lead them to fulfill their passion in science or medicine.

    “Don’t panic when you realize that it may be a long and winding road to your ultimate scientific or professional destination, that it’s taking longer than expected to find the passion that will last a lifetime,” Dr. Jarolim said. “Your education here at KCUMB has prepared you to tackle any topic you may be interested in, and to devote yourself to it fully. After all, once you know the language of science, you can speak it in many different areas of research.”
