Vivian Ko, BS

University of California San Diego

Vivian Ko is a Neuroscience PhD student at University of California, San Diego. Her previous research focused on the role of striatum neural circuitry in dopamine-mediated motor learning and mechanisms underlying non-invasive ultrasonic neuromodulation (sonogenetics). She has since then transitioned to translational research and is dedicated to investigating pathological molecular pathways that underlie neurodegenerative diseases such as ALS. In addition to her research goals, she is committed to advocating for diversity within academic research through community outreach efforts and by mentoring students and trainees.
