IP CPRIT CURE Summer Student awarded Goldwater Scholarship
CPRIT CURE Summer student John Boom was awarded the prestigious Goldwater Scholarship. This national scholarship recognizes college sophomores and juniors in fields of natural sciences, engineering and mathematics.
A Duke undergraduate double-majoring in biomedical engineering and chemistry, John was paired with Dr. Wu’s lab last summer as part of the CPRIT CURE summer program. Returning to Dr. Wu's lab this summer, John is expected to continue his work on developing machine learning models to predict immunotherapy response in lung cancer.
Congratulations to John Boom on his national recognition, and to Dr. Wu for being paired with such a promising research leader.
