Pain and Neuroinflammation Imaging Lab

Intern

I am a current undergraduate junior majoring in human physiology on the pre-med route at Boston University, with a strong interest in neurology. More specifically, I have a deep fascination with exploring research inquiries within the field of neuroinflammation. Previously, I have gained valuable research experience working as a Research Assistant (RA) at Lincoln Medical Center in Bronx, NY, where I assisted residency students and physicians with patient care and outreach, analyzed medical files of patients with post-septic shock, and performed literature reviews on contemporary and historical research methodologies in post-septic shock studies.

I am delighted to have this opportunity at the Loggia Lab and motivated to engage in research utilizing a diverse range of neuroimaging modalities, including structural and diffusion MRI and PET, to investigate brain functionality in individuals afflicted by chronic pain conditions.
