Osahon is a senior Neuroscience and Chemistry double major. After receiving a grant from the UNC Office of Undergraduate Research, he has primarily spent the last year developing and optimizing a low-cost, novel diagnostic tool for Human Brucellosis under the supervision of Dr. Emily Ciccone. During the 2021-2022 academic year, he plans on completing his senior honors thesis focused on elucidating the neurological implications of untreated Ehrlichiosis and using RPA cycling to create a diagnostic tool to diagnose this disease. Outside of the classroom, he enjoys working as a medical assistant at his family-run clinic, watching anime, cooking, playing basketball, and listening to R&B, hip-hop, and afrobeats.
