Led by Elena Del Prete, contract and grant specialist, the Cancer Research Office (CRO) Team raised more than $5,600 to benefit cancer research and patient care at the UMass Medicine Cancer Center of Excellence. On Jan. 9, Chancellor Michael F. Collins hosted a luncheon to thank the CRO fundraisers for their outstanding efforts.
