Dr. Korb is a neuroscientist at UCLA and scientific consultant. Do you need help with data analysis? Is your company interested in running an fMRI study? Dr. Korb helped Parexel International design and execute it’s first ever internally funded fMRI study. He also assisted them with implementing a large fMRI study for an early phase clinical trial. He has analyzed data for several biotech companies, and helped them meet their research goals. His research expertise includes data analysis, fMRI study design and operation, as well as quantitative EEG and EEG source localization.
