Description

CCBBI Director, Dr. Ruchika Prakash, has announced the ADNiR scholars for the year 2020: "The ADNiR initiative is designed to provide funding support, professional development, and guidance to undergraduate students committed to topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We received some great nominations, and it was heartening to see such great budding scientists committing to a career in neuroimaging. Our two ADNiR scholars are Arian Sorani and Yasmine Gokcen."

Congratulations to our 2020 recipients:

Yasmin Gokcen

Yasmin Gokcen

 My name is Yasemin Gokcen and I am a third-year neuroscience major specializing in cognitive and computational neuroscience. I joined Dr. Zeynep Saygin’s lab around springtime of my freshman year, and I have been lucky to take part in fMRI scans of all different ages. I currently plan on going to graduate school, and though I am still discovering the specifics of what I want to study, I most enjoy learning about the language network and applications of neurolinguistics.

 

 

Arian Sorani

Arian M. Sorani

 I am a Kurdish international student at The Ohio State University studying psychology. I am interested in using neuroimaging methods to learn more about associations between neural connectivity and psychopathology to improve the diagnosis and treatment of externalizing disorders in children and adolescents. I feel very fortunate to have been selected as an ADNiR scholar and plan to conduct research examining differences in resting-state connectivity in children diagnosed with ADHD at risk for substance abuse in Dr. Theodore Beauchaine’s laboratory.
