Introductory organic chemistry has sent many a pre-med scurrying toward an alternative career. And that’s exactly what it did for Aaron Engelhart — but not for the usual reason, and not in the usual direction. Instead of steering him away from science, the class steered him toward it, and he gave up his ambitions to be a doctor to pursue a Ph.D. in molecular biology.
