In research on mice, Duke scientists found high cholesterol fueled the spread of breast cancer. They also found anti-cholesterol drugs appeared to reduce the growth of the cancer.

At a recent Duke Global Entrepreneurship Network event in New York, students and alumni pitched business ideas to a group of potential investors. The winner was senior Alex Browne. His business -- called Turnout -- helps e-commerce websites better target customers.

Double congratulations Nyuol Tong. The senior from South Sudan recently had a short story included in an anthology published by writer Dave Eggers. Tong was also awarded a $10,000 grant to plant drought-tolerant corn in his hometown of Ayeit, South Sudan.

It's time for exams and then winter break. See you next year!
