Emily Z. Wang is an active M.D. candidate at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. She graduated with honors from the University of Michigan with a B.S. degree in neuroscience in 2015. Since then, Emily has spent time solidifying both her clinical and research interests in treating adults with chronic, disabling neuropsychiatric conditions. She recently dedicated her 6-week psychiatry clerkship at the Substance Abuse Rehabilitation and Recovery Treatment program at Edward Hines Jr., VA Hospital, and is currently working with Dr. Amy Herrold on investigating the implications of alcohol use disorder and mild traumatic brain injury on brain pathology. Her research proposal, “Analyzing gray matter volume and density in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and dorsal striatum and its correlation to functional disability in veterans with alcohol use disorder and mild traumatic brain injury” was awarded a Student Training in Research scholarship from Stritch School of Medicine in 2020. Emily’s first-author publication on investigating predictors of fatigue self-management behaviors in adults with multiple sclerosis was recently featured in the journal of Neurorehabilitation.
