Neuroscience Research Opportunity at MUSC

Dr. Heather Boger’s lab is looking for a student volunteer to aid in a research project about pediatric stroke and potential treatment strategies. This is a basic science (neuroscience) project using an animal model (rat) of pediatric ischemia. The student would be participating in surgeries, behavior assessment, and brain tissue processing, and microscopic analysis.

The ideal candidate would be able to volunteer 12-15 hrs a week. No previous lab experience is necessary but would be a nice bonus. The lab would do all training of the individual, so the student would have an active role in the project, including their name associated with any presentations/publications.

Interested students should contact Dr. Boger at for more information.
