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.

In one of the largest science-research-based crowdfunding campaigns to date, Northeastern University College of Science associate professor Michael Pollastri raised $25,031.
Congratulations to Kristian Teichert, an undergraduate chemistry student who works in Professor John Engen’s lab.
