A graduate of the University of California, Davis, Dr. Ruben notably earned a Bachelor of Science in chemistry. Soon thereafter, he received a Doctor of Philosophy in physical chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley in 1972.
Between 1977 and 2005, Dr. Ruben excelled as a research professor at Dartmouth College in which his expertise in biological sciences was prominent. Additionally, he flourished as the editor in chief of microscopy reach and technique at the aforementioned institution for 10 years. Outside of his primary career roles, Dr. Ruben served on the board of the renowned Synapse for the NeuroScience Journal.
To remain abreast of developments in the field, Dr. Ruben maintains affiliation with the Microscopy Association of American, the Microscopy Society of America and Sigma Xi. In the coming years, Dr. Ruben is looking forward to finding something new to study that he does not understand, as he believes taking on a challenge is the most exciting part of working in science. Additionally, he wants to continue to experience new things in life, such as trying new foods.
