Yuen Fang

Yuen has won the UMC st Radboud Master Prize 2011/2012 for her thesis entitled “Interaction of DNA methyltransferase 3B Gene with Childhood Adversity on Hippocampal Volume”.

Yuen, a former student of the Cognitive Neuroscience (CNS) program, studied the effects of DNA methylation genes on the interaction between environmental factors and brain volume using the Brain Imaging Genetics (BIG) database, part of Cognomics. This thesis was written under supervision of dr. Mark Rijpkema (UMCN) and dr. Martine Hoogman (MPI). It is the second time a CNS master student wins this prize working with data from the BIG database, Janita Bralten won this prize in 2010.


After finishing her master cum laude, Yuen moved to the US to work at the Sleep & NeuroImaging Lab, University of California, Berkeley.

The Radboud prizes will be awarded on the 10th of June in the Hippocrates room.
