C. Paula de los Angeles
MD/PhD Student Researcher
Joint PhD in Neuroimaging and Applied Computational Lab (Professor Lei Wang) and Mathematical Neuro-Oncology Lab (Professor Kristin Swanson)
I graduated from Stanford University in 2010 with a double major in biological sciences and psychology. Post graduation, I worked at the World Health Organization headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland and completed a master’s in Mind, Brain, and Education at Harvard. I am currently an MD/PhD student in the Medical Scientist Training Program at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine. I am completing an interdisciplinary joint thesis in the laboratories of Professor Lei Wang (Neuroimaging and Applied Computational Anatomy Lab) and Professor Kristin Swanson (Mathematical Neuro-Oncology Lab) I plan to assess neural capacity and functional recovery in the setting of injury; specifically, the ability of the brain to recover/remodel in GBM patients.
