Medical Student Kevin Stonewall Seeks to Cure Cancer

Keven injected older and younger mice with an experimental vaccine before also injecting them with aggressive colon cancer cells.

His research was published in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer, and he was a finalist in the 2013 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.
