Welcoming Cora & Adelae

We are excited to welcome our Summer students to the lab this week.
Adelae is an incoming freshman at Bates College.  Her project is in our 'skunkworks' of trying to redefine how targeted therapies can be delivered -- by surgeons!  This project involves a lot of 3D printing and robots... the type of experience ideal for Adelae's interest in systems biology and neuroscience.  
Cora is a Chemical Engineering student at University of Massachusetts, entering her Junior year this Fall.  Her work will be focused on The Alexa Project, which will define the resources available for drug discovery in NF1-associated Juvenile Pilocytic Astrocytoma (a form of brain tumor).
