Omar Abdelbadie

I am a junior majoring in neurobiology with a Japanese minor, and a member of the UW Computational Neuroscience Training Program. I have been in Dr. de la Iglesia's lab since Spring 2011, and was initially drawn by my interest in sleep and neuroscience. Throughout my time here, I've assisted graduate students (Sung Han) and postdocs on their projects, and am currently working with Travis Lilley. I've also made a lot of great friends and mentors. After graduation I plan to continue doing research for a few years in Japan before figuring out my PhD and/or MD plans.
