Babatunde Adeyemo is a Neuroimaging Enginner with experience in data acquisition optimization (electro-neurophysiology, rsfMRI), hardware design/development and data analysis (Signal Processing, Statistical Modeling, Machine Learning, Graph Theory and other Non Linear methods). His interests lie in developing methods for subject/group characterization and analysis of Alzheimer's Disease and other neurodegenerative states.
Anna Boerwinkle began working in the Ances lab as a research technician after graduating from Washington University in 2017 with a B.S. in Systems Science and Engineering. She is interested in neurology and got involved in neuroimaging research to combine this interest with her engineering background. Anna‘s primary research is evaluating neuroinflammation in people living with HIV using PET imaging. She is also responsible for processing the FreeSurfers and PET scans for the HIV projects.

Omar is a neuro-oncology fellow who works in both the departments of neurology and medicine (division of oncology). He has a MS in molecular biology from Johns Hopkins University and an MD & PhD from the University of Pennsylvania. In 2019, he completed his neurology residency here at Washington University in Saint Louis where he also served as chief resident. Omar has broad interests in multi-modal imaging and the integration of plasma and cerebral spinal fluid into understanding cognition changes in cancer, secondary due to cancer therapies, and in preclinical Alzheimer Disease (AD).

Dr. Karin Meeker is an Instructor in Neurology in the Ances lab. She completed her PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at Saint Louis University. Her primary goal is to further the understanding of disease pathogenesis and progression of Alzheimer disease (AD) using multimodal methods. Since beginning her position, Karin's work has largely focused on the utilization of emerging markers of inflammation and neurodegeneration to determine how they are associated and interact with established neuroimaging biomarkers of AD. She is also interested in ethno-racial differences in AD biomarkers and the effects of social determinants of health.

June Roman is an IT Project Manager in the Ances Lab. She is a programmer with several years of experience in software development, product support, tech mentorship and leadership. She emphasizes improving workflows and processes, maintainability, and creating the conditions for better collaboration and an inclusive work environment. June loves the slow and steady joy of seeing a long project come into shape, whether that project is a software application, a thriving aquarium, a growing houseplant, or a knitted shawl.
She completed her PhD in Psychological and Brain Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis in 2022, working with Dr. Denise Head. Her primary goal is to characterize cognitive and brain aging, as well as factors that influence cognitive and brain health, using both behavioral and neuroscientific methods. She is particularly interested in understanding how lifestyle factors, especially physical activity, influence healthy and pathological aging processes.
Jeremy is an Assistant Professor of Neurology currently positioned at Washington University in St. Louis. His work has consisted of deciphering anatomical correlates of cognitive change. During his graduate studies at the University of Texas at Dallas, his research revolved around using structural imaging markers to differentiate between variants of dementia (Alzheimer disease and frontotemporal dementia, or FTD) to assist in clinical diagnosis. The bulk of this research was devoted to identifying localized regions of impaired white matter that uniquely coincided with FTD pathology. Additionally, Jeremy transitioned to studying the impact of concussions, but retained an emphasis on brain-behavior relationships.
