  1. Congratulations on your son entering such a field of the future, and at a university at the epicenter of the fight against Covid-19. Thanks also for putting some of your hard earned cash of the computer revolution to the same cause. Great family!

  2. Congratulations to Mitchell and to your whole family. How proud you must be, and deserve to be. Johns Hopkins is one of the premiere academic centers for Coronavirus research. And what an exciting time to be studying biomedical research. Good on you all!
