  • Kerem Nernekli

    Kerem Nernekli

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiology

    BioDr. Nernekli has a wide-ranging research background encompassing molecular imaging, surgical neuroanatomy, clinical outcome studies, and machine learning, focusing on medical image reconstruction and multimodal deep learning algorithms for classification and segmentation tasks. Currently, he is focused on investigating novel radiotracer and activatable Gd-based contrast agents to detect senescence in large animal models with PET/MRI. Furthermore, Dr. Nernekli is exploring the potential of ferumoxytol-MRI and two-photon microscopy to correlate theranostic nanoparticles in their natural environment in order to gain a deeper understanding of their interactions with tumor-associated microenvironments.

    BioI am interested in increasing access to medical technologies, particularly in low-resource settings. I develop computational and bio-analytical technologies for early detection of disease, presently focusing on methods to increase sensitivity and multiplexing capabilities in diagnostic devices. Through developing these systems, I get to explore and play with subjects such as statistical modeling, image processing, manipulation and design of molecular systems, and optimization techniques. As a student, I have gotten to take classes ranging from many project based computation courses to linear dynamical systems to deep dives into chemistry of therapeutic drug development. I look forward to bringing my wide base of experiences in both computational and biological realms towards breakthroughs in precision health and diagnostics amenable to lower resource settings.

    I also am always excited to teach and mentor, and have been involved with a myriad of opportunities including curriculum development and teaching AI/ML to high school students in US and India, K-12 STEM outreach in US, Scratch curriculum teaching to teachers in Taiwan, and graduate level courses such as Biological macromolecules to Stanford students! Im always happy to chat about how to best reach and inspire students and people of all ages, so please reach out!

  • Madelena Ng

    Madelena Ng

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Biomedical Informatics

    BioDr. Ng is a postdoctoral fellow at the Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research, mentored by Dr. Tina Hernandez Boussard. Her research aims to illuminate the evolving ethical and practical challenges with emerging technologies used for health purposes. Prior to joining Stanford, Dr. Ng facilitated mobile- and internet-based health research initiatives with the Health eHeart Study and the Eureka Digital Research Platform and developed research study prototypes that used blockchain technology for health data exchange. Her current work focuses on discerning key challenges that exist at each stage of the AI life cycle and generating informed guidance to drive the responsible and equitable use of AI for patient care.

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychiatry

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in how brain dynamics and cognitive functions in health and disease emerge from interactions within biological neural networks. To this purpose, I combine theoretical and computational models of brain dynamics and function inspired by statistical physics and information theory with analysis of neural recordings at different scales using machine learning methods.

  • Minh Dai Nguyen

    Minh Dai Nguyen

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Gastroenterology

    BioDr. Minh Nguyen joined the Prof. Jeffrey Glenn laboratory as a postdoctoral scholar in August 2022. In collaboration with Safaran ChEM-H Medicinal Chemistry Knowledge Center, his research objective is to harness the power of organic synthesis toward the development of novel antiviral therapies. Minh obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania under the direction of Prof. Amos B. Smith, III, where his doctoral work centered on the convergent total synthesis of two marine natural products nahuoic acids Cii and Dii.
