Congratulations, Linnea Kremer! PhD Spring 2024

Congratulations to Linnea Kremer (Armato Lab) who successfully defended his thesis on Wednesday, April 24, 2024.

Her thesis is titled: "MRI Radiomics for Imaging Genomics, Risk Classification, and Prediction of Disease Progression in Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease".

Linnea joined the GPMP at the University of Chicago in the fall of 2019 after completing her master’s in Bioengineering and playing competitive soccer at the University of Nottingham in the U.K. Her master’s research was on quantitative, multi-parametric MRI analysis of the effect of dialysis on the major organs at the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre (SPMIC).

She joined Dr. Sam Armato’s lab to research polycystic kidney disease, specifically autosomal dominant kidney disease, using quantitative MRI for diagnosis, prognosis, and disease progression. Kremer also has a B.S. in physics with minors in math and Christian studies from Roanoke College.
