Sho Yano, then 13, confers with DNA co-discoverer James Watson.

Nine years.

That’s how long it took Sho Yano to get his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Chicago.

Thing is, he started when he was twelve. [Click here to see a ‘before’ story with photo.]

Now he’s twenty-one, and ready to start his residency in pediatric neurology. That usually takes four years. This story and the accompanying video and photographs show what a fine young man he has grown up to become.

Yano earned his PhD in molecular genetics and cell biology. Apparently, he’s pretty good at violin, too.

No word on now much time he spends in front of the tube or playing his Xbox.
