In the Spotlight features standout scholars in the School of Medicine. Read Becky Bach's interview with Eddy Albarran:

Eddy Albarran has a killer story about how he happened to attend Stanford, first as an undergrad and now as a graduate student in neurosciences. I'll let him dive right in:

"We're originally from Peru, but we were living in Idaho and my mom was working as a housekeeper. She worked for a great man who was a professor here [the late Norman Nie, PhD]. She saw Stanford this and Stanford that all over the house.She came home and said you've got to go to this place. She forced me to apply. I had no idea what it was.Once I got in and came to check it out, I found out what Stanford really was."

Eddy Albarran is a 2018 DARE Fellow and a SPICE funding recipient.
