Come join Praise Owoyemi ’18 and Tamare Adrien ’19, to learn about the Geriatric Psychiatry Research Program, directed by Dr. Brent Forester, which addresses cutting-edge research questions in the areas of dementia and mood disorders using new neuroimaging techniques, clinical-pathological correlations, and other study methods. Current studies include a number of Sponsor-led Alzheimer's disease clinical drug trials, longitudinal analyses of older adults with depression and bipolar disorder, and neuroimaging studies focused on oxidative stress in geriatric depression. The Division of Geriatric Psychiatry also includes a cutting edge program studying digital technologies and their potential for enhanced diagnostics and personalized care. This program is the only one of its kind, and it interfaces with the Institute for Technology and Psychiatry at McLean Hospital.

The Clinical Research Assistant positions that will be available for application are geared towards individuals who are interested in gaining both clinical and research experience, and are preferably interested in pursuing a career in the health professions. Clinical research assistants are largely responsible for maintaining the department’s studies, including reviewing protocols and conducting visits with patients in the studies. As such, research assistants will be trained in and be able to perform many clinical tests, such as ECG, phlebotomy, and administration of neurocognitive tests. They are also expected to maintain patient information and collect data for studies.” For more information contact:
