NIU undergrad researching cancer
Evan Wittke spent the last three semesters helping find a cure for cancer.
Not bad for a sophomore!
As a Research Rookie, Evan works side-by-side with Professor Barrie Bodie in his lab. It's a research opportunity of a lifetime.
Together, the duo is studying how cancer cells metabolize. Their research has the potential to help provide a better tomorrow for millions of people and will undoubtedly provide a better tomorrow for Evan and hardworking NIU students like him.
NIU donors, like Jaymie and Harry Simmon, help provide experiences like Evan's for NIU students every day.
