“Network level analysis methods for connectome-wide association studies”
Hosted by the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology (MIR)
Background: Dr. Wheelock is an Instructor in the Radiological Sciences Division of the Department of Radiology. She will be promoted to Assistant Professor in July 2022 within the Department Radiology. Dr. Wheelock obtained her PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience from the University of Alabama at Birmingham where she studied the behavioral and neural response to psychosocial stress using functional and structural connectivity analysis. During her postdoctoral training in Developmental Neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis, she utilized graph theory to determine brain networks underlying healthy and disordered cognitive and behavioral development. Her BRAIN Initiative K99/R00 project is focused on developing and disseminating network level analysis statistical methods for connectome-wide association studies across the lifespan and in health and disease.
