Nawang Singhe, BS

Nawang (he/him) is a 2022 MIR research scholar, currently in medical school at University of Minnesota. He graduated from UW-Madison in 2019 with a BS in Industrial & Systems Engineering and is interested in combining this background with his interest in neuroradiology. His summer research project utilizes functional connectivity MRI (fcMRI) to model the brain’s major cortical association networks as a function of beta-amyloid plaques and tau, two hallmark pathologies of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), in individuals with preclinical AD. Nawang hopes that his findings will help guide the use of fcMRI in clinical trials aimed at preventing or slowing down the cognitive symptoms associated with AD.
