This research opportunity and training will allow the participant to garner many experiences with in vitro assays that evaluate antibacterials. The participant will learn the next progressive steps in therapeutic development. These steps will include in vivo and animal modeling/translational science, which gives the applicant exposure to the crucial pre-clinical evaluations that are required for any drug development.
Our goal is to help the participant prepare for the next step, whether that be a PhD program, DVM, MD, or something completely different. This educational opportunity and area of science is invaluable as it is highly desired by both industry and government. This experience will serve the participant in their career development, gaining valuable networking opportunities and knowledge to become an asset to any company or non-profit institute in this field. Our clinical laboratory training will help the participant succeed in their future endeavors. This research opportunity will also provide a well-rounded laboratory education that will encompass an understanding of the problems and mechanisms behind antibiotic resistance, and learning the methods to develop therapeutics to combat this global problem.
This appointment is a twelve month research appointment, with the possibility to be renewed for additional research periods. Appointments may be extended depending on funding availability, project assignment, program rules, and availability of the participant.
