During the spring semester, Julie Schlanz '23 (Shadyside, Ohio) learned how to grow melanoma cells. Weeks after the semester ended, she was still on campus working with the cancerous cells - this time, trying to kill them.
Oftentimes, great opportunities are a result of both what you know as well as who you know.
For Cameron Dowiak ’19 (Burgettstown, Pennsylvania), getting the opportunity to spend the summer working in a lab at Yale was the culminating result of her own impressive scientific background and a helpful alumni connection.
