Ranganath's double major in Public Health and Neuroscience is guiding her in her path to become a physician with a deep knowledge of metabolic disease, diabetes and obesity.

The Woodrow Wilson Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program provides funding to a select group of undergraduate students, enabling them to pursue independent research of their own design. Working closely with highly respected Hopkins faculty mentors, these students pursue their own research throughout the course of their undergraduate experience.
