Available: 11/18/19, Expires: 09/30/21

This is an open-ended opportunity for the student to participate in summarizing the literature around inflammation and Alzheimer's Disease. Our research group studies biomarkers of neurodegenerative disease, and runs numerous clinical trials seeking to improve quality of life and detect, prevent, and treat Alzheimer's disease.

The student's role will be to work directly with the researcher, participate in laboratory meetings, and help design and complete a publishable literature review within the broad framework of the lab's research focus. The student will receive one-on-one support throughout the process, and the goal will be for the student to have learned more about neurology, Alzheimer's disease, and scientific writing and publishing.

Available: 10/16/20, Expires: 10/01/22

We have a variety of opportunities for interested medical students and graduate students in the medical /neurosciences fields. Most to all projects would be possible to complete off-site. Examples include working on retrospective chart analyses / in-silico drug trials, authoring a review related to work happening in the lab. Medical or neuroscience background (trainees welcomed) is essential. I would be the primary mentor, and the work would be through the Alzheimer's Clinical and Translational Research Unit (actru.org).

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
