My name is Ralph Laurel, and I am a senior in Chemical Engineering with a concentration in Biomolecular Engineering at UT Knoxville. This is my second year participating in UT’s iGEM team, and I'm happy to be here! Last year, I was the outreach coordinator for the team, whereas this year I take on more of an administrative and logistics role. Outside of iGEM, I work as an undergraduate research assistant at the Neal Stewart Lab for the UT Institute of Agriculture. I look forward to another great iGEM experience!
