We have a range of educational and training programs including a fellowship training program, contributions to residency training, and opportunities for graduate and post-graduate researchers. Techniques used in the basic science labs include molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, and cell and mouse models of disease. Clinical research on Huntington's disease, cerebellar and related disorders involves neuropsychiatric evaluation, neuropsychological testing, neuroimaging, and clinical trials of experimental therapeutics.
INTERDISCIPLINARY TRAINING in Psychiatry and Neuroscience
As one of the Division's training opportunities, this National Institute of Health-funded program permits individuals who have completed their residency or doctoral program to participate in either clinical or basic science training relating to neuropsychiatric diseases. Candidates for this program must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Applications from individuals who are members of under-represented minorities, have disabilities, or are from an economically disadvantaged background are strongly encouraged.
If you are interested in this or any aspect of our training program, please read about the work of the various laboratories to see the range of basic and clinical research being done in the Division as well as the clinical services being offered in the Baltimore Huntington's Disease Center and then contact Dr. Ross.
