Our AAN Clinical Research Training Scholars

Congratulations to third year residents Anna Goodheart and Omar Al-Louzi, who both received the AAN Clinical Research Training Fellowship. Anna is staying at Partners for a movement disorders fellowship, and under the mentorship of Stephen Gomperts she will use molecular imaging biomarkers to glean further insights into the various types of parkinsonian dementia. Omar will complete this fellowship at the NIH, where he will employ advanced imaging methods to better characterize MS lesions. Congratulations!

Unravelling the mysteries regulating neuroplasticity

Congratulations to our NM1 resident Priya Srikanth, who has been selected to receive a prestigious Young Scholar Award from the Jacobs Foundation. With her mentor, Tracy Young-Pearse, Priya uses induced pluripotent stem cell-derived neurons to study the ways that genetic and environmental factors regulate neural development and plasticity. We are incredibly excited to find out what Priya is able to learn in the lab -- discoveries that have the potential to fundamentally change neurologic therapeutics!

Our Hospitals

Our residency program combines the neurology services of Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women’s -- two of the world’s most prestigious teaching hospitals. Our residents also benefit greatly from clinical experiences at Children’s Hospital of Boston and the Boston VA Hospitals.
