UMass Medical School quietly gaining star quality

Teamwork, funds draw top talent in research

WORCESTER - Cancer researcher Craig Ceol has a stellar résumé, built in Boston and Cambridge: He earned his graduate degree at MIT, worked with one of the world’s foremost stem cell biologists at Children’s Hospital Boston, and played a leading role in identifying a gene implicated in deadly skin cancer. His work won him a federal grant early in his career.

Ceol applied for jobs nationwide and said he received more than a half-dozen offers or callbacks. But his first choice among those was clear: the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester.
