Ruben Schmidt

Ruben Schmidt is strongly motivated to put his technical skills to use through patient oriented research. During his graduate studies (MSc. Applied Physics, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands) he opted for the Medical Physics track and wrote his Master’s thesis on ‘organ deformation during brachytherapy treatment’. His current research on motor network degeneration in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), funded by the Netherlands ALS foundation, is aimed at unraveling pathogenic mechanisms underlying ALS using advanced magnetic resonance imaging techniques. He currently uses his engineering background in the field of patient-oriented computational neuroscience for his doctoral work at the Dutch Connectome Lab (2013 – present) at the University Medical Center Utrecht, Netherlands.
