Undergraduate Research Opportunities

We frequently have openings for new undergraduate research assistants in the lab. Undergraduates are active and valued members of our team; they are often involved in running experiments, recruiting participants, and managing data. Undergraduates attend and participate in weekly lab meetings and are encouraged to explore their own research interests in the area of pain. Many have presented posters at local and national conferences, and have been co-authors on publications.
