While at CU Boulder, I worked as a research assistant for 4 years in a clinical neuroscience lab. I studied patients with mild traumatic brain injury.
I left (August 2008) a position as a professional research assistant/research coordinator in a lab that studies children with autism.
I worked in clinical pediatric oncology (kids with cancer in clinical trials) managing the institutional review board (IRB) documents/compliance for 100 studies.
