Renowned Biologist Visits Science Classes

Andrew Hessel is the synthetic biologist who visited Mrs. Sullivan's biology classes last week. Mr. Hessel is a synthetic biologist doing cutting edge research on cancer, among other things. His work involves personalizing cancer viruses that attack cancer cells. His talk was so interesting and inspirational that a number of non-biology students joined the class to hear him speak. It isn't often that such a renowned scientist visits our school.
