Mentor: May Han, Assistant Professor of Neurology and Neurological Sciences

Jasmine Kyi is a rising sophomore and prospective human biology major from Yorba Linda, California in Orange County. Jasmine is working with Dr. Maya Desai in Dr. May Han’s neurology lab studying multiple sclerosis. Hoping to attend medical school in the future, she is gaining experience this summer in a research lab with a project focusing on characterizing MS lesions using high-resolution, high-field MRI in correlation with immunohistochemistry staining. Outside of the lab, Jasmine enjoys playing basketball on Stanford’s club team and spending time with friends.
