Dr. Richard Macri has professional interest "in the synthesis and testing of new drugs, specifically towards treatment of diabetes and fibromyalgia." If chemistry had not won over his academic passion, he would have done something with computers. "I'm a computer geek," he explains. "I spent four years in the Marine Corps where I was an aviation electronics technician." His biggest accomplishment to date, he shares, is graduation from Marine Corps Boot Camp. That achievement made him realize, "I can do anything after that."
