Irene Eckstrand is enjoying retirement after nearly 35 years managing NIH research programs in evolutionary biology, infectious disease modeling, and genetics. Retirement did not mean slowing down. These days, Irene volunteers as a Master Gardener with the University of Maryland Extension Service, sings alto in a local choir, works on the family genealogy, and gives occasional talks on genetic complexity and the philosophy of science.
