Dr. Renee Richer first came to Qatar in 2007, to teach biology at Weill Cornell Medicine in Qatar, a Qatar Foundation partner university. Having grown up in rural America, Dr. Renee has always held an innate appreciation for plants and animals. As a young student, she focused on biological studies and naturally continued down that path throughout her career.
