Brianna Ramirez RubioStudent Researcher Microbiology, Immunology, and Pathology
Brianna is an undergraduate student pursuing a degree in Microbiology. As an Undergraduate Research Fellow (URF), Brianna will be investigating the effects of pre-existing anti-Lactobacillus acidophilus (LA) antibodies on the immune response to a recombinant LA oral rotavirus vaccine. After finishing her undergraduate degree, Brianna plans to pursue an M.D-Ph.D. dual degree, as it combines her passions for scientific research and helping people go back to living healthy lives. As a first generation Hispanic student, Brianna is excited about being a part of closing the “gap” that exists between underrepresented minorities and participation in science. In her free time, Brianna loves to play the cello and explore the outdoors with her dogs.
