Cancer research co-​​op points to exciting career path

When Mark Nan­iong, S’14, began his co-​​op at the Boston-​​based Belfer Insti­tute for Applied Cancer Sci­ences at Dana-​​Farber Cancer Insti­tute last spring, becoming a sci­en­tist wasn’t on his radar. But his expe­ri­en­tial learning oppor­tu­nity at the world-​​renowned treat­ment and research facility gave him a rare oppor­tu­nity to con­duct cut­ting edge research that could have major impli­ca­tions for the gen­eral public—an impact that this fifth-​​year chem­istry major hopes to cul­ti­vate in a future career in patent law. – See more at:
