Andrea De Abreu E Gouvêa, BA

Position title: Medical Student


About me: I am a medical student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health. In 2020, graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in Neuroscience. Before coming to UW-Madison, I completed a two-year post-baccalaureate research fellowship in an integrative neuroimaging lab at the NIMH. My current research interests are in neurodevelopment and infant neuroplasticity.
What motivates me: I value integrative learning and medically-driven scientific research geared toward bettering the lives of individuals and families. The opportunity to engage with infants and their families while performing cutting-edge research motivates me as a student, future physician and scientist.
