Clinical Research Coordinator Department of Oncological Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai - NYC
Are you interested in psychology, biology, public health, and/or medical research? Are you seeking a full-time research job before applying to graduate school or medical school? Are you looking for more clinical experience?
The Department of Oncological Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in NYC is seeking full-time clinical research coordinator applications (start date flexible, summer 2017).
Under the leadership of Dr. William H. Redd, our field of research is classified as Psychological Oncology. Our goal is to investigate innovative treatment options to improve quality of life for cancer patients by addressing the common psychological side effects that often accompany the course of cancer treatment. We find that many patients report fatigue, depression, difficulties with thinking, memory and concentration, disruptions in sleep and wake cycles, and lower qualities of life, and these side effects can progress years after diagnosis and treatment.
Our team is investigating non-pharmacological, low-burden light therapy treatments to reduce these side effects. We are also exploring the underlying biological mechanism(s) through which the light is improving these symptoms. We currently study autologous stem cell transplant survivors, but we hope to expand to breast cancer, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease in the near future.
