Change starts when we decide to get involved.
With a background in research, medicine, and policy, Ramon aims to use his passions and experiences to help other students reach their goals.
As a young scientist, Ramon has recently completed three competitive research programs with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the nation's leading scientific research agency. From his experiences, Ramon has published abstracts and papers on various research topics and attended numerous research and leadership conferences across the nation. His interest in behavioral neuroscience led him to pursue a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Psychology.
Ramon is also the founder of the ever-growing student success website, Student Scientists, which provides students in STEM fields with the resources and opportunities they need to be successful in their field. His work in this field earned him a place in the HIVE Global Leaders Program hosted at Harvard Medical School during his junior year of college.
While in his senior year, Ramon worked in the U.S. Senate concentrating on Health and Science policy. The experience gave him a unique understanding of the impact of advocacy on the legislative process and on the intersection between research, medicine, and policy.
Through his work in research, advocacy, and Student Scientists, Ramon aims to build the young students of today into the pioneers and innovators of tomorrow.
