The objective of this project is to analyze patient outcomes as it relates to surgery for lung cancer, postoperative care, and oncologic outcomes. The bulk of the role includes data entry to our 1500+ patient lung cancer database. As well as performing literature reviews, developing hypotheses, basic statistical analysis, analysis of data and assist on manuscript writing. There is opportunity to observe thoracic surgery cases in the OR. The student will gain knowledge on how to interpret data. It is expected to be able to dedicate at least 5 hours/ week, attend weekly lab meetings, submit a poster or video to a meeting and write at least 1 paper as first or second author. Enthusiasm and attention to detail are important, experience in data/statistical analysis are not required, but helpful.

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.
