Raquel Murillo


Degree: B.S in Chemical Engineering



Bio: My name is Raquel Murillo, I graduated in Spring 2018 from WSU with a bachelor’s in chemical engineering. During my time at WSU, I was exposed to bioengineering research which peaked my interest in medicine. I am currently pursuing a biomedical engineering doctorate degree at the University of Rochester in New York. My focus for my graduate studies is on nanoengineering in medical diagnostics. I was mentored throughout my undergraduate career by professors, friends, family members, and through the TMP program. It was such a valuable experience that provided me with the encouragement and guidance I needed to grow in my career. Through the TMP Alumni/Industry Partner Track I hope to continue this growth and help others who have similar goals. Regardless of the difficulty of the career choice I found that it is best to not tackle it alone.
