Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have created the first mathematical model that can predict how a cancer patient will benefit from certain immunotherapies, according to a study published in Nature.
Scientists have long sought a way to discover whether patients will respond to new checkpoint inhibitor immunotherapies and to better understand the characteristics that indicate a tumor can be successfully treated with them. The proposed mathematical model, which captures aspects of the tumor’s evolution and the underlying interactions of the tumor with the immune system, is more accurate than previous genomic biomarkers in predicting how the tumor will respond to immunotherapy.

Whether you’re a recent graduate, looking to switch jobs or took a break and want to get back into the scene, these tips from Siddharth Gopinathan at Hackernoon might make your employer prospecting phase easier.
- Spend a week and make a list of companies you badly want to be a part of.
- Do your research on the company. Show that you have put in your hours to get to know them better. Make notes for: Their market share/traffic. Useful tools for this are SimilarWeb, SEMRush, AppAnnie, How their product evolved over the months or years. Use WebArchive. Product updates, main competitors, etc.
- Email the Founder/CXO. The irony is that you have a much higher response and turnaround rate when you mail the head directly than mailing the HR.

Oratory Now is a student-centered initiative to reinvent the way oral expression is taught, practiced, and recognized at Middlebury College. Taking place both inside and outside the classroom, the multifaceted program consists of experienced peer tutors who help students develop their public-speaking skills—ultimately helping to shape a college-wide oratory program.
The internship does not require any prior public speaking ability, though there will be opportunities to develop public speaking skills if the intern so chooses.
This internship will give a Middlebury student the opportunity to explore a range of professional skill building that could include event production, promotion and management, advertising/PR/marketing, video and assessment analytics, coach-training curriculum development and more. The Oratory Now Winter Term Intern will work on-campus and assignments may include a combination of the following:
- Planning and managing the Commons Championship speaking competitions with 5-10 nominated contestants in each of the 5 Commons: Atwater, Brainerd, Wonnacott, Cook and Ross
- Coordination with residence hall staff to confirm space, equipment, food and beverage, etc
- Raise awareness of events through social media, postering and other creative strategies
- Contribute to the continued development of the Oratory Now coach training curriculum through analysis of videos, self-assessment results and other metrics
- Raise general awareness of Oratory Now programs and services among Students, Faculty and the greater campus community through ad hoc projects that leverage and develop the intern’s personal interests and professional skills

In 1991 in Burlington, Vermont, ReCycle North began an innovative program of repairing and reselling household items that otherwise would have gone to the dump. Out of that founding vision, more than 750 people have received job training and skills essential to gainful employment, 10,000 low-income people have received needed household goods and building materials, more than 10,000 tons of materials have been kept from the landfill, and 50 people now have secure employment through income earned largely from this social enterprise. ReSOURCE’s success to date has proven its sustainability and is replicating this model of environmental sustainability, educational training, and economic opportunity in central Vermont.
ReSOURCE offers internships that would be a great fit for Middlebury students!
They have internships in:
- Development and Marketing
- Employment and Transition Support
- Human Resources
- Website Upgrade Project Management
- SQL/MS Access Development
