CaNCURE students present career-defining research
Fifteen undergraduate CaNCURE trainees presented their co-op research at the 1st Annual CaNCURE Nanomedicine Day on June 15, 2015. A total of 40 interactive, digital research posters were prepared by undergraduate and graduate students engaged in nanomedicine research. The event was resounding success, with over 100 students, faculty, and researchers attending to support CaNCURE and other Nanomedicine education initiatives at Northeastern University.
