MassLive and the Worcester Herald all published articles about April Solon '17, who spent 10 weeks at the University of Massachusetts Medical School researching the effects and interaction of different drugs used to treat acute myeloid leukemia. Her work was funded by a grant from Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer. "This summer was definitely very challenging," Solon said. "I definitely got a good look at what the research field is really like." She expects to graduate with a double major biology and biochemistry.
