Researching a Cure: IC Alumna Continues Her Cancer Research in Boston After Graduation

Written by Rachel Drachman

Haley Coleman '14 at IC graduation.

Faced with the death of her mother after a battle with melanoma, Haley Coleman ’14 devoted her studies in undergraduate biology to cancer research. She continues her research today in Boston.

“I was well prepared to land a job in research at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston thanks to the incredible opportunities at Ithaca,” she said.

Along with her research pursuits, Coleman intends to participate in the 120th Boston Marathon on April 18. She’ll be running as part of the Dana-Farber Marathon Challenge charity team, which raises funds for the Claudia Adams Barr Program.

“This program supports innovative research breakthroughs in both understanding the disease and developing treatments,” said Coleman.
