32 U.S. Students Chosen As Rhodes Scholars

it's sort of like going into journalism

Among the winners was Elizabeth W. Mayne, 23, a senior at Stanford University majoring in biology with a focus in biochemistry and biophysics.

Besides studying cell cycle regulation, Mayne has spent time setting up workshops on Shakespeare for underprivileged students in the San Francisco Bay area.

"I was really stunned," the Denver native said after learning she had been chosen. "It was such a tremendously qualified and amazing group of people, so I was really just honored to meet them."

Mayne said she plans to study physiology at Oxford. She said she then plans to pursue a doctorate and medical degree and "hopefully contribute to the cure of diseases."
