Renzo Laynes has just finished his first year at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he is studying Integrative Physiology and following the pre-med track. His goals are to attend medical school and eventually become a surgeon with a specialization in trauma or oncology. During the summer, Renzo will be working as a student intern at the Rock Creek facility located at Exempla Good Samaritan Hospital in Lafayette, where he has been placed in the laboratory. During his first year at CU-Boulder, Renzo has decided to join several groups such as Roteract, Alpha Gamma Omega fraternity, and even ran for a position on the CU Student Government. During his free time he enjoys playing intramural sports such as soccer and flag football, as well as doing anything outdoors. As well as many of his UPP peers, Renzo comes from a culturally diverse background and is excited to bring a unique flavor to this group and program.
