It s hard to believe that a scientist with a docket of publications as Christine Skibola, Ph.D., did not

graduate from college until she was nearly 40. Hailing from a poor family in the Bronx, Dr. Skibola left

home at 17, married young, had two children and was working as a court stenographer before deciding

to return to school at age 36.
