Liangyu Tao receives PURA award!

Liangyu Tao, a BME undergraduate, received a President’s Undergraduate Research Award from Georgia Tech for the Fall 2016 semester.  Congratulations!  Liangyu’s undergraduate research is focused on computational models of the dynamics of interacting regions of the brain that are implicated in drug-resistant depression. This modeling work is informed by ongoing human subject experiments in the lab of Dr. Helen Mayberg at Emory University.  Liangu is mentored by Vineet Tiruvadi, an MD/PhD BME student working with Dr. Helen Mayberg and co-advised by Dr. Robert Butera.
