Vaibhav Janve, PhD

Staff Scientist

Dr. Vaibhav Janve is a postdoctoral fellow at Vanderbilt Memory and Alzheimers Center (VMAC) under the mentorship of Dr. Timothy Hohman. He earned his integrated masters in physics from Indian Institute of technology, Kharagpur, India. Following which he completed his Ph.D. in physics at Vanderbilt University where he investigated sensitivity and specificity of two quantitative MRI methods qMT and DTI to demyelination in animal model of multiple sclerosis, for which he also developed a pipeline integrating light microscopy with MRI for quantitative histological validation. During his postdoctoral training with Dr. Adam Anderson in biomedical engineering department, Vanderbilt University. He extended this work to investigate biological basis of diffusion MRI and tractography validation in non-human primates with submicron 3D confocal microscopy. At VMAC his work with the Computational Neurogenomics Team focuses on computational approaches identifying genetic determinants that confer resilience to Alzheimer’s disease using gene network and genome wide association (GWAS) analyses.
