Interested in Our Research? Join the Team!

We welcome visiting physicians and fellows as volunteers.

The team focuses on investigating novel treatments of neurological disorders. Specifically, current projects involve the utilization of various preclinical mouse models to uncover the neurobiological processes of ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, and those associated with aging, Alzheimer disease and other related vascular cognitive impairments. The lab is especially interested in inflammation, antioxidants and natural products.

Volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about the rigorous process of scientific inquiry and gain hands-on experience conducting experiments (for example, PCR-genotyping, perfusion, brain harvesting, slicing, staining, and quantification/analysis, etc). Those interested will be asked to commit an average of three 4-hour blocks a week; additionally, summer internship is encouraged.

Please email us if you are interested in volunteering or would like more information about this exciting opportunity.
