Corinne Donnay

Corinne Donnay

Junior specialist (2020-2021)

Corinne earned her B.A. in Neuroscience from Scripps College (2020) and has experience with intracranial EEG data. During her time in the FAN Lab, she used arterial spin labeling MRI to study perfusion in vascular lesions of patients with cognitive impairment.

Corinne has been professionally involved in the Public and Global Health Sector. In Fall 2021, she embarked on her PhD studies in advanced neuroimaging with applications in multiple sclerosis, through the NIH-Oxford Scholars Program.

Siriluk Thammasart

Siriluk (Ice) Thammasart

Visiting PhD Student (2022), Biological Engineering

Siriluk graduated from King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), Thailand, with a B.S. in microbiology in 2016. She is currently a Ph.D. student in Biological Engineering from KMUTT (Graduation: 2023). She studies low-level light therapy for Alzheimer's Disease (AD) treatment and works in mammalian cell culture techniques, chemical analysis, and molecular biology.

KMUTT cooperated with the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) Thailand, providing a scholarship to train with high-quality labs from the leading countries. Siriluk got a chance to learn about improving the robustness of brain imaging technologies to understand physiological deficits and study brain function in the FAN Lab for one year.
