Only four undergraduate students at the University of Notre Dame were chosen as research fellows for the Harper Cancer Research Institute Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (HCRI-SURF). The HCRI-SURF awards support full-time summer research for undergraduate fellows working in HCRI laborites.
Maxwell Kennard is one of the four awarded students for HCRI-SURF. What makes him even more unique is that he was able to capture that opportunity just after his freshman year. Now a rising sophomore at Notre Dame majoring in Mechanical Engineering and Japanese, Kennard was quick to show his interest in research of this complexity. He is advised by Dr. David Hoelzle, Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering.
