Der lab members, Amber Amparo and Kayla Snare (undergraduate students in Biology) worked with the Carolina Cancer Association to raise money for cancer research. This group, co-founded by Kayla and Jonah Im, helps to make Lineberger resources accessible for biology students.
In 2020 the CCA raised $7,000 despite the global pandemic. These funds were split between the Comprehensive Cancer Support Program and the Adolescent and Youth Cancer Program.
