Connections Fuel Biochemistry Major in Mayo Clinic Internship

Patrick Erickson '15 spent the summer between his junior and senior years with Dr. Xiu-Boa Chang doing research into drug interaction with multiple myeloma, a form of cancer that targets white blood cells in bone marrow.

"The main thing Susquehanna has done to prepare me for this internship is the interactions you have with the professors," Erickson said. "At a larger school you don't have that type of relationship with them. They've seen who I am on more than just a student level. And the classes have helped prepare me for the things professionals want you to do in a lab setting, like recording and the machinery we have to work with."
