My guest today is Nancy Ruiz, a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering under the supervision of Dr. Chris Schaffer. She’s currently working in understanding vascular inflammation and capillary stalling in Alzheimer’s disease mouse models. We talk today about biomedical imaging and its application to understanding Alzheimer’s disease better, Nancy Ruiz's process of exploring her research interests and deciding to work in biomedical engineering, as well as her involvement in different science communication initiatives.


You can follow her on Twitter, @NancyRuizU.
