Research Assistant

"My time at the VUMC in the Powers Brissova Lab was a wonderful experience in research. I worked there for two summers, and I learned so much. The staff there not only taught me about lab practices, science, research, and academia, but also about excellent professional values, integrity, and the importance of mentorship. I would recommend this lab for anyone that wants to work on the cutting edge of endocrinology research amongst some of the most talented and intelligent researchers I have had the pleasure of meeting."

"While working at Vanderbilt I have encountered the most friendly and helpful people I have ever had the privilege of working for. At the ground level Vanderbilt is a great place to work. Upper management and high level administration seem to be unaware of what is happening at the middle and lower levels of organization and this is not a good thing."
