ICRU Ambassador
Biography
Saul Ocampo Landa

Description of research: Dr. Campbell’s lab focuses on investigating the causes and mechanisms behind muscular dystrophies.  More recently, the Campbell lab has also been focusing on new treatments/therapies and their effects on the various systems affected by these muscle diseases.

While I initially joined the lab just to put something on my resume and make some money, research has pushed me beyond what I could’ve ever imagined.  Through mistakes, successes, and everything else, research has helped me to find my own motivation and appreciate my natural curiosity.  One of the big draws of ICRU is the ability to share this experience with others and encourage them to find their own paths.

Beyond research, I like architecture, cars (no, not the movie), playing video games, and anything else I can do besides studying.
