Caleb Rogers attends the University of Pennsylvania where he is pursuing a BSE in Bioengineering and on the pre-med track, with a minor in math. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, Caleb plans on attending medical school to pursue an MD in the field of Cardiology. Caleb’s interest in Cardiology stems from his prior research at T3 Labs. During Caleb’s time at T3 Labs, a biomedical research facility sponsored by the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University, he studied the impact of mitral valve regurgitation on the structure and functional abilities of the heart.
During the 2019 SUMR program, Caleb is working with Dr. Li Shen and Dr. Xiaohui Yao to perform integrative analysis of brain network data, genetic data, and cognitive data available from the NIH Human Connectome Project. The goal of Caleb’s work is to identify outcome-relevant human brain connectivity measures and their genetic basis. Additionally, Caleb employs the brain connectivity toolbox to perform network analysis, modified existing R scripts to identify outcome-relevant network measures, and performed genetic association analysis.
