Pablo Nunez Perez

2023 NeURO fellow
Bioengineering major
Stanford University

I am currently a sophomore majoring in Bioengineering on the pre-med track. My family and I immigrated from Mexico to Fargo, North Dakota when I was 5 years old. It was in Fargo that my passion for neuroscience took root, sparked by my curiosity about how the brain works and now driving my desire to understand how we can enhance the diagnosis, treatment, and management of neurologic diseases. I am thrilled to be working in Dr. Melanie Hayden Gephart's lab this summer, where I hope to contribute to our understanding of metastatic brain cancer progression. At Stanford, I am also actively involved in the Cardinal Free Clinics, the club soccer team, and multiple projects related to global health with the Center for Innovation in Global Health. In addition to neuroscience, I am deeply committed to improving health outcomes for underserved communities and low-income countries, particularly among Latino populations. In my free time, I enjoy playing soccer, painting, hiking, and skiing.
