Cameron Ortiz is a Junior in the BS/MS Bioengineering program at CU Denver. In his second year, he worked as a student assistant in the Neurology clinical trial department on neuro-degenerative diseases. He hopes to pursue graduate research in genetics and cell biology of FSHD in the future.

This summer, Cameron will be doing a computational project focused using cell free DNA of individuals affected by FSHD to track disease status. Cameron is jointly mentored by Dr. Jagannathan and Dr. Ramachandran in this project. We are excited to have Cameron with us this summer!
