This work shall subsequently complement our preclinical efforts in relevant animal models to test potential interventions in neurological diseases. We are looking for a research assistant who will contribute to design, implementation, and documentation of the project. The work will be in the remote mode until the situation is safe to work from campus(Atria University).
