Albertus Magnus Cancer Research Student Science Day

November 04, 2022

On Friday, October 28, Albertus Magnus College Professors Mark Barreuther and Rebecca Brogan brought seven Albertus Magnus undergraduate students to Yale Cancer Center for the first Albertus Magnus Cancer Research Student Science Day. Yale Cancer Center graduate student Mariana Do Carmo, postdocs Sebastian Cruz Gomez and Ece Koçak, medical oncology fellow David Schoenfeld, and medicine resident David Su gave presentations about their paths to becoming a cancer researcher or physician-scientist, as well as talking about their cancer research projects and presenting clinical cases. The students then toured the King and Burtness labs. This event was a wonderful introduction to cancer research and careers in cancer research for students from Albertus, and the first Albertus undergraduate to do a research internship at Yale Cancer Center will be joining us in December. Albertus Magnus College is our near neighbor in New Haven, and is a minority-majority institution highly ranked for its impact on social mobility. We are delighted to partner with Albertus in introducing a new generation to cancer research.
