Only 22 early-career researchers were selected as Pew Scholars this year, and Thyme is one of five whose research focus is the brain.

Tyler Huang graduates from UAB with a Bachelor of Science degree in neuroscience and a Master of Science degree in multidisciplinary biomedical sciences with a concentration in neuroscience. He is part of one of the first cohorts finishing an Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s.
Preserving brain health in an aging population is a growing concern in the United States. An estimated one in five Americans 65 years and older has mild cognitive impairment, and one in seven has dementia.

Dustin Fast plans to incorporate artificial intelligence and machine learning in his efforts to build better eye-activation software as he enrolls in UAB’s neuroengineering doctoral program.

Tuscher is one of what the foundation calls “150 of the world’s most promising young scientists” doing groundbreaking neurobiological research.
