Julián's Background

Julián recently graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Studies, where he excelled in his coursework and demonstrated a keen interest in the intersections of medicine and neuroscience. His academic achievements, coupled with his volunteer work at local healthcare facilities, showcased his unwavering dedication to the medical field.

Why Chemo Brain?

Julián's passion for neuroscientific research led him to our lab's Chemo Brain Project. Chemo brain refers to a condition characterized by cognitive deficits, such as memory problems and difficulty concentrating, experienced by some cancer patients following chemotherapy. This condition can significantly impact the quality of life for those affected, and Julián is determined to contribute to understanding and alleviating these cognitive impairments.

Julián's Role

As a vital member of our team, Julián will be working on the Chemo Brain Project, where he will contribute to ongoing research aimed at unraveling the mechanisms behind chemo brain. His responsibilities will include data collection and analysis, literature reviews, and collaboration with fellow researchers. Julián's fresh perspective and enthusiasm for the project are sure to bring new insights and energy to our lab.

A Future Medical Professional

Julián's long-term goal is to attend medical school, where he aspires to become a physician who can provide not only medical treatments but also empathetic care and support for patients facing cancer and its associated challenges. His experience in the Chemo Brain Project will undoubtedly be an invaluable stepping stone towards achieving this goal.

We are incredibly excited to welcome Julián Ramos to our Lab and to witness his contributions to the Chemo Brain Project. His dedication, intelligence, and passion for making a difference in the lives of cancer patients are truly inspiring. We look forward to seeing the progress and discoveries that Julián will help us achieve in our pursuit of understanding and mitigating chemo brain.
