ANNUAL GIVING TOTALS
undergraduate alumni participation
Evelyn Goroza, S’22, and Thomas Cava, S’22
Evelyn Goroza, S’22, and Thomas Cava, S’22, are fighting COVID-19 while on co-op at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Both students started their jobs in January as patient care technicians, but when their regular floors were transformed into COVID-19 units, they chose to stay and join the effort to save lives.
Mary Jo Ondrechen and Penny Beuning
Professors Mary Jo Ondrechen and Penny Beuning are leading research that is identifying the amino acids that help COVID-19 infect and thrive at the expense of human cells. Their innovative work will enable scientists to better understand the virus and develop new treatments to stop the virus from replicating in the body.
Ali, mori, and Mostafa LoTfi
Mostafa Lotfi and his cousins, Ali and Mori—all of whom studied mechanical engineering at Northeastern—have refocused their family business, Lacerta Group Inc., to make face shields. The plastic packaging manufacturer has nearly 400 employees, plus the in-house capacity to perform every aspect of production for the in-demand apparatus.
