Our outcomes laboratory provides opportunities for research and training at the undergraduate, medical student, graduate student, and postdoctoral fellow levels. The scope of work for laboratory members includes learning and applying methods in epidemiology, biostatistics, data systems analysis, computer analytic code writing, and use of neuro-imaging software in concert with our retrospective brain tumor databases, national outcomes databases, and prospective quality-of-life brain tumor databases. Members of the lab are expected to produce meaningful manuscripts that significantly contribute to the literature, in addition to writing relevant book chapters and grants for future work. Members of the lab are also exposed to work from associated laboratory effort, including exposure to our skull base laboratory, basic science stem cell laboratory, and historical Harvey Cushing Archives project.
We currently have positions available for highly qualified post-doctoral scientists interested in brain tumor clinical research. Interested applicants should have excellent skills in biostatistics, epidemiology, and the design of clinical trials to participate in projects aimed at making progress towards understanding and treating brain cancers. Please send your CV and references to Dr. Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Graduate Student Training
Excellent dissertation project opportunities exist in our laboratory for clinical brain cancer research. Students currently enrolled in the any of the Johns Hopkins University graduate programs are welcome to plan research rotations within our laboratory. Students in the MD/PhD program or graduate programs of Neuroscience, Public Health, or other programs are welcome to discuss research opportunities in the laboratory.
Neurosurgery and Neurooncology Laboratory Research Fellows
Our laboratory provides opportunities for clinical fellows seeking a research project in brain cancer clinical research. The Johns Hopkins Department of Neurosurgery provides a two-year research opportunity for residents and this laboratory provides one of many flexible environments for ground-breaking research in neurooncology. Also at Johns Hopkins, in combination with the NIH, is an NIH-funded training grant, Research Training in Neurooncology, which provides a means for clinical fellows to gain new experiences in clinical care and laboratory research.
