Briana Ruíz Christophers is an aspiring physician scientist interested in bringing social justice to the lab bench and hospital bedside. As an MD-PhD student at Weill Cornell Medicine, she is pursuing training as a developmental biologist.

She served as co-president and advocacy chair of Princeton Latinos y Amigos, and in 2015, she was a leader within the Latinx Collective, a movement that worked to amplify Latinx student voices. Her other advocacy work includes serving on eight University committees and co-founding Project Welcome Mat: A Guide for First-Generation Students; she has been recognized with the Frederick Douglass Service Award at Class Day, the Spirit of Princeton Award, and the Santos-Dumont Award for Innovation.
