Rafael Rippel is doing a Ph.D in Sustainable Chemistry with specialization in Organic Chemistry. As a visiting researcher at the Department of Chemistry at UC Berkeley, Rafael will have the chance to work under the supervision of Dr. Richmond Sarpong to develop novel small molecules for lung cancer treatment. His stay in the USA will greatly impact Rafael`s expertise as a synthetic organic chemist. Moreover, the opportunity to work in a multicultural environment and collaborate with like-minded individuals will be a major step towards the fulfilment of his personal goals and ambitions.
