The Pai Lab has a long history of volunteers, graduate students and past research coordinators who go on to achieve great things in their careers. Most go onto graduate school in Psychology and Medicine, some go on to complete their degrees and enter clinical and research positions and some leave to spend a semester at sea!
Our previous lab members use the skills they learned during their time here to help further their careers. Many participate in conducing study visits, analyze data for school poster presentations and papers, and work on international and NIH funded studies. These skills, among many others, set up those who have worked in the Pai Lab for success!
