    Women undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer have long complained of lingering cognitive impairments after treatment. These effects are referred to as "chemobrain," a feeling of mental fogginess. A new study from the University of Illinois reports long-lasting cognitive impairments in mice when they are administered a chemotherapy regimen used to treat breast cancer in humans. The results are published in the journal Behavioural Brain Research.

    Matt Kavanaugh had originally applied to Illinois as an undergraduate, but finances prevented him from coming here. So he matriculated to the University of Kansas, where the rising junior is majoring in Chemical Engineering with a concentration in Biomedical. However, when searching for something productive to do over the summer, he came across the NSF-funded Bioimaging Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at Illinois. “It caught my attention because it overlapped with my interests,” he explains. “And it was a place I liked and had had to decline in the past, but, ‘Now I’m here, and it has excellent facilities,’ so I came here.” And based on his exposure to cutting-edge cancer research in Bioengineering Professor Rohit Bhargava’s lab, he may have discovered his future career.
