Alderson, Ryan


  • B.S. in Zoology with a concentration in Cell & Developmental Biology, Michigan State University, 2006

I have spent most of my career working in the Anatomic Pathology industry as a Product Manager, Technical Applications Specialist, and Histotechnologist. I have worked in both the clinical and research setting. During this time I graduated from Western Michigan University in 2012 with a Master of Science degree in Biological Sciences. My Thesis Project was titled "Scopolamine-Induced Dry Eye Model in Female Rats." Additionally, I graduated with an MBA degree from Michigan State University's Eli Broad College of Business in May of 2014; my second degree from the university. Currently, I am employed with Cardinal Health where I have been working since 2014. Cardinal Health is a Fortune Top 30 healthcare services company that provides pharmaceutical and medical products and services in the United States and internationally. My current position at Cardinal Health is part of the Medical Segment's Data & Analytics team. In this role, I am a Business Intelligence Consultant where I support the Northeast Region as the team's Analytics Business Partner. My wife, Rachel, and I really enjoy living in Central Ohio.

It has been an experience almost ten years in the making to reach this point and I wanted to share my story with the department and university where it all began.
