Over the years, Scott has remained connected to Stevenson through his involvement with many committees, including the Alumni Association and the Dick Watts Sports Hall of Fame Board.

There he worked to expand user-friendly genetic tools to better diagnose inborn genetic conditions, a project he also leads in the DRC.

Dr. Bramble is passionate about expanding genetic technologies and research capacity within numerous developing countries. He is a passionate mentor and teacherâ€”lecturing in many countries on topics ranging from sexual development to neglected tropical diseases.
