Andrea Gomez BS ME '20, MS BME '21

During my time at Wright State, I had the privilege of receiving an LSAMP research stipend that not only helped financially, but it encouraged me to make meaningful contribution to something I cared about: the health and wellbeing of others. This stipend facilitated my research into traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), specifically with a new diagnostic measure for continuous monitoring of the brain called 'functional near-infrared spectroscopy' (fNIRS). TBIs are more prevalent than one might think. They cause more deaths and disabilities than HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injuries combined.
