Reem Alzafiri (MSc Student)

Reem is a MSc student in the Translational Medicine Graduate Program through the Department of Medicine. Reem’s research examines the histological and molecular validation of a novel 3D ultrasound-based tool, called Intelliplaque, in identifying vulnerable atherosclerotic carotid-plaque features.The correlation of ultrasound imaging with identified plaque biomarkers will allow the identification of the “vulnerable patient” and guide management decision with respect to early intervention.
