Eduardo Rafael Gamez
University of Arizona

I am an Honors junior studying at the University of Arizona in Tucson. I am majoring in Physiology with a minor in Microbiology. For the past year, I have been working at an immunobiology research laboratory with Dr. Sam Campos at the BIO5 Institute, where we study the molecular mechanisms of human papillomavirus (HPV). At Dr. Campos’ lab, I have been focused on the innate immune signaling pathways, specifically, the cGAS-STING pathway and its responses to different conditions. From my time at Dr. Campos’ lab, my interest and passion for scientific research have grown and inspired me. My main research interests range from immunology, infectious disease, microbiology, and epidemiology. I am most curious about diseases and the role they play at a molecular level and their impact on our world. I am very excited to see where my curiosity and hard work will lead me as I continue to work in science and research.

Aiden McRobbie-Johnson
University of Arizona

I am an Honors junior studying Physiology at the the University of Arizona. For the past year and a half I have been working in the Department of Surgery, Division of Trauma, at Banner University Medical Center. At the division of trauma I have helped with the development and implementation of a few protocols for the care of incoming trauma patients. The protocols I have helped create are a protocol for incoming patients with traumatic facial-maxilla injuries, a large bedside protocol for patients with spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries that is placed in the ICU unit, and a large drunk driving research and campaign program. These experiences at the trauma division have only increased my devotion towards the medical field and bettering patient care. My main research interests are concepts related to the cardiovascular system, immunology, and the nervous system. I have taken a wide variety of classes related to the nervous system and its function, but I also am drawn to the intricacies of the cardiovascular system, and the untapped potential of the immune system.
