I plan to attain a master’s in biotechnology through the PlusOne program offered at Northeastern. I also plan to work in biotech—specifically in immunology, because I have a passion for helping cancer patients. Eventually, I would like to launch my own start-up and run a biotech company myself.''
The impact of your financial support also allows me to take on an independent study as a teacher’s assistant in Dr. William Sharp’s upper division Theories of Personality class! I cannot thank you enough for your compassion. It enables my career growth and promotes my aspirations in psychological research.''
The device that we are designing would allow surgeons to scan the surgical bed and receive video feedback showing the location of cancer deposits that were left behind and may be inaccessible via conventional means.
Furthermore, upon locating these small deposits of cancer cells, the probe can be activated into the ablation operating mode to ablate the cancer cells in view. We have been developing this handheld probe with the intention that it will allow surgeons to further improve their treatment capabilities.
With the funding that we were awarded, we have been able to implement additional imaging capabilities and signal markers that allow us to more directly test a variety of system parameters and much more easily interpret the results of these tests.
Ultimately, we want this device to be one that is commercially available to neurosurgeons around the world in the hopes that we can provide improved outcomes to as many patients as possible. We also see quite a bit of potential for our technology to serve similar purposes in other highly precise surgical procedures as we continue to improve on the details of the design. All this work has been particularly exciting for me as I hope to continue my role in medical device research as my career continues to progress.''
Thanks to donor investment, we can provide learning opportunities to these bright students, while practicing our important and innovative research to find solutions to the many problems facing our coastal communities.''
