 Dave RampeDavid Rampe has put his education to good use. An author and contributor to over 80 publications as well as co-inventor on several drug patents, he cites his biggest career accomplishment as helping unravel how pharmaceutical drugs can produce arrhythmias in the heart.

 Rampe says that his time at Herkimer was key in building his confidence to continue on to a four-year institution. “Coming from a small, rural school… I felt insecure,” Rampe recalls. “But at Herkimer the teachers were good; I got my feet wet and started taking courses like physics and chemistry.”

 He continued at Buffalo receiving his Ph.D. from the Department of Biochemical Pharmacology followed by a post-doctoral fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine.

 “I still remember Herkimer,” Rampe stresses, “Herkimer gave me the preparation I needed to succeed.”
