• Waging a Battle Against Cancer Yvonne Sun, Class of '06, is working to bring new technologies, treatment & hope to cancer patients.

    From small start-ups to large-scale, commercial drug manufacturers, Yvonne has built her career on improving the lives of others. Currently a Senior Quality Assurance Manager at Ziopharm Oncology in Boston, she has taken on her biggest challenge yet—waging a battle against cancer. Yvonne manages the QA team overseeing Phase III clinical trials on a new immunotherapy. Elevated to the FDA’s FASTRAK Program based on positive early results, the new treatment has promise to shrink tumors and improve the overall survival rate of cancer patients.

  • Exploring the Universe Learn how Kevin Gill, Class of '11G, turned his dream of working in space into reality.

    Software engineer turned scientist, alumnus Kevin's master’s degree project garnered public attention before his graduation. He developed an algorithm to generate a set of hypothetical images that portray Mars as a living, vibrant planet with oceans, oxygen-rich atmosphere, and a green biosphere. He initially shared the images on social media, and they went viral—within a week, he was fielding questions from major news outlets, and NASA groups had shared the images on Twitter. That master’s project opened a big door for Kevin, who is now a Science Data Software Engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California.
