Brain and Metabolism Imaging in Chronic Disease Trainee

Opportunity Number:
22
Lab/Department:
Brain and Metabolism Imaging in Chronic Disease (BAMIC) Lab
Details:
The Brain and Metabolism Imaging in Chronic Disease Lab is offering a non-paid trainee opportunity to undergraduates and college graduates interested in hands-on research experiences in biomedical imaging.

The trainee will learn protocols for analyzing MRI scans of the brain or abdomen to extract anatomical parameters of interest. This involves learning background knowledge in human anatomy and magnetic resonance imaging, as well as learning standardized protocols for using Photoshop-like computer software to annotate images. More advanced projects that assess relationships between anatomical parameters of interest and indicators of chronic diseases are also possible pending adequate performance.

This project is designed to enhance the knowledge base and biomedical research skills of individuals aiming to apply to medical school or to graduate programs in the biological sciences.

Trainee may earn up to 3-6 hours of curriculum credit; student enrollment requirements apply
Preferred Majors:
Biology, physiology, anatomy, neuroscience, biomedical engineering, exercise science, or related fields in the biological sciences
Areas of Interest:
Human anatomy, human physiology, body composition, radiology, neuroanatomy
Course Credit:
Yes
