Initiated about a decade ago, this annual award aims to acknowledge an exceptional contribution by a UCL student or staff member in the early stages of their career in the field of Neuroimaging. Brain Products and Brain Products UK are proud to sponsor the award, which includes a trophy, a certificate and a cheque for £1000.
Prof. Louis Lemieux, the UCL-CNT chair, presented this year’s winner, Dr. Alexandra Young, the award for her pioneering work in image-based disease progression modeling over the last five years.
Alexandra Young did her PhD at the Centre for Medical Image Computing in collaboration with UCL’s Dementia Research Centre. After completing her PhD, she was awarded a two-year EPSRC doctoral prize fellowship, which she has just finished. She was supervised by Prof. Daniel C. Alexander, who provided her official supporting statement for the award (excerpt below).
On behalf of the whole Brain Products and Brain Products UK team, congratulations Alexandra on winning this award. We will for sure continue to follow your research work and wish you all the best for your future!
