Nathan Cherrington leads a laboratory study of the non-genetic factors in peoples’ adverse drug reactions. This research hopes to identify and treat leukemia patients who could develop life-threatening reactions to a cancer-fighting drug. Ultimately, Nathan’s research will help ensure that every patient gets exactly the medicine they need in exactly the way they need it.

“Philanthropy allows us to continue doing the things that are the highest priorities within our university."

"We’re an outstanding university with top programs in several fields. Now is the time for us to decide whether the status quo is sufficient or whether we continue leading in research that will shape our world for the next hundred years.”
