Born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Raniyah Ramadan attended Ada High School before joining the University of Oklahoma where she received her Bachelors of Science degree in 1998. Raniyah graduated with a Masters degree from OU in 2000 and the following year was admitted into the PhD program at the Oklahoma Center for Neuroscience.

Mentored by Dr. Michelle Callegan, Raniyah graduated with her doctorate in Neuroscience in 2007. Shortly after, Raniyah was awarded a prestigious post-doctoral research fellowship in Cleveland, Ohio. Switching from academia to an industry position, Raniyah later moved to Manhattan, New York where she worked as a research consultant in neuro-ophthalmology with Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.

Sadly, Raniyah passed away at age 34. To honor their late daughter’s memory, Raniyah’s parents — Dr. Tawfik and Siham Ramadan — established a foundation to support her favorite charities as well as establish scholarships in health sciences and promote ophthalmology and neuroscience research.
