Singhal attended the wrong orientation as an incoming freshman. No big deal. It just sparked her curiosity, inspired her to switch majors, and led to transformative research and co-op experiences. Next month, she’ll share the highlights of her journey when she delivers the student commencement address on May 5—the same day she turns 23.
At Northeastern, Sarah Sherman has developed a passion for cancer research through hands-on training on co-op. For her Fulbright project, she plans to evaluate whether recent improvements to Botswana’s pathology labs have led to more timely diagnoses.
Climate change biologist Brian Helmuth will speak today at a high-level meeting at the United Nations headquarters, where he will highlight his research and participate in a discussion on efforts worldwide to address climate change and meet global sustainable development goals.
