2020 ADNiR Scholars Announced
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:
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.
