Dear UD, Biden hasn’t forgotten about you

There seems to be a partnership in the works around vice president's “Cancer Moonshot” initiative.

Last week, we told you about the hot mic incident that Vice President Joe Biden found himself in. He accidentally announced his plans to work out of the University of Pennsylvania after leaving the White House (but was it really an accident, uncle Joe?). But being based out of Penn doesn’t mean that he counted out any partnerships with his alma mater, the University of Delaware.
While Penn and UD’s media relations offices aren’t saying much about the soon-to-be former VP’s next moves, the Associated Press reported a partnership with UD that furthers his “cancer moonshot” efforts following the passing of his son, Beau Biden, last year. Through these efforts, Joe Biden hopes to finally find the cure for cancer.
Who knows, maybe we’ll run into him at the UDairy Creamery? We sure hope so.

Companies: University of Delaware / University of Pennsylvania / White House
