2017 Research Start Group

Approximately 100 students, mentors, family, and friends came to the new Cancer Center at Illinois – located at the Beckman Institute – to celebrate the accomplishments of 24 researcHStart students. Guests enjoyed spending time learning about the summer research experience through a poster session and by oral presentations given by the students from the three host sites: the University of Chicago, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. King Li, the keynote speaker, delivered an inspiring and engaging dialogue about the direction of medicine and cancer research. Each student was celebrated with a certificate of completion and a warm congratulations from the researcHStart program donors, Debra and Ira Cohen.
