helped him succeed at the next level

Juan Carlos Infante earned his Associate in Arts degree from Doral College in 2015—the same year he graduated from high school. In 2019, he graduated yet again, this time from Harvard University, with a Bachelor of Arts in Molecular Biology and a Minor in Global Health and Health Policy.

Originally from Colombia, Infante came to the United States as a child. He earned his AA through a combination of concurrent enrollment college courses and credit earned from stellar scores on Advanced Placement exams, and graduated at the top of both his high school and college classes. Infante was also an active member of the College's then Bioethics Debate Team and remains involved with the College as a member of the Board of Trustees.

In his time at Harvard, he was extensively involved in student organizations and projects. He has served as Outreach Director for Harvard College Children's Stories, and most recently the PR Manager for "An Evening with Champions." Infante also volunteers with Harvard's Alzheimer's Buddies program, which pairs students with residents in an assisted living facility. During the summers, Infante has worked on science education projects at Vertex Pharmaceuticals and as a researcher at the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, a cause close to his heart. As a child, his mother suffered a spinal cord injury as a result of a car accident. Thankfully, she recovered, but the experience stuck with him, and recently he published a study in the world's most cited neuroscience journal, Frontiers in Neuroscience.

"By empowering me to take on dynamic professional and academic experiences, Doral College has pushed the boundaries of what I ever thought myself capable of accomplishing."
