Journal entry by laurie adami

On Saturday, Gus and I flew to D.C. to set up his dorm for sophomore year. All week he is in full day EMT training and we meet up when he finishes at 6 pm. I seem to be visiting Bed Bath and Beyond frequently. This year, he has a full kitchen but he had no kitchen supplies. I am having so much fun picking everything out.

Today I visited the National Art Gallery and the American History Museum, where I took a photo of the Penicillin mold which Fleming discovered in 1928 which finally helped eradicate bacterial infections. The invention of CAR-T immunotherapy has been likened to the discovery of penicillin and the indications all point to the use of CAR-T to revolutionize the treatment of cancer.
