22 Oct 2020
Rohan Raphael Das has always had a desire to help others. As a teenager he became involved with Stand Up Shout Out, an activist group that gave voice to the youth of Kenya and led campaigns to preserve African wildlife from poachers. Later he volunteered at his local hospital and helped provide medical care to the poor and the homeless.
Last year Rohan completed his Honours in Biomedical Science at Bond University, where he was part of a research team working on a less invasive cancer therapy. Now Rohan is utilising his knowledge of analytical chemistry in the pursuit of a PhD at Southern Cross University. His dream is to return to Kenya to improve their health care services.
