New FNNDSC Member(s):

Qi Jing (QJ) Yap

QJ is currently pursuing a Master's in Health Data Science at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Previously, he graduated with a Bachelor's in Statistics from the University of California, Los Angeles. He works at the FNNDSC with Dr. Yangming Ou as a data science intern on Transfer Learning with brain MRI images.

Erick Alan Cuellar Quintanilla

Erick is an undergraduate student at Tecnologico de Monterrey campus Saltillo, in Mexico, studying Mechatronics Engineering. He is working with Dr. Kiho Im testing the measurements of the cortical plate in fetal brains, as well as MRI processing and analysis.

Abraham Collins Ramírez

Abraham Collins is majoring in Digital Systems and Robotics Engineering at Tecnologico de Monterrey, México. Currently, he is doing a year-long research internship at the FNNDSC, where he is part of the MRI team and does fetal MRI processing and analysis. The project he is working on aims to create an automatic MRI pipeline for the measurement of cortical plate and subplate thickness from in vivo fetal MRI using convolutional neural networks.
