Kai Qiao, MSBI Student

I'm a graduate student in the Masters of Science in Biomedical Imaging Program (MSBI) in the department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at UCSF. My current research interests center around neurodegenerative diseases, specifically Alzheimer's and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. I am a firm believer that an early, noninvasive diagnosis of any disease gives full opportunity to wholly treat a patient by simultaneously preventing pathogenesis whilst expanding confidence and dignity. The goal is to find or be a part of innovative methods that can be used to address current and future unmet clinical needs. My Bachelor's in Biological Sciences was from UC Davis, and my focus leaned towards human physiology. A non-exhaustive list of my hobbies and interests include: playing badminton, exploring cities, making music, swimming, cycling, skiing, and eating.
