University of Massachusetts Medical School Volunteer Research Opportunity

My research lab actively investigates biological markers (endocrine and brain imaging) which may predict which women are at risk or who are "protected" from developing perinatal depression or anxiety. 

I have worked with and trained several undergraduate, graduate and medical students in these research studies.

The student's role, once CITI trained, is hands on with research participants under supervision.  Students learn about informed consent and perform depression screening in pregnant women and conduct visits on labor/delivery;  learn how research interviews are conducted which assess not only psychiatric symptoms but obstetric information; evaluate participants longitudinally from late pregnancy to the postpartum; learn about neuroendocrine biomarkers and their significance towards understanding the pathophysiology of perinatal depression; attend neuroimaging sessions at UMass Medical School, obtain collaborative skills with principal investigator (PI) and research coordinator involved in the study, perform minimal research database entry to be shared with PI and research coordinator, etc.  He/she will be able to learn about clinical trial design, recruitment strategies, research ethics, IRB procedures, etc. as they pertain to the study.  There are numerous facets in which to be involved, and the student would have a desk adjacent to the research coordinators in our research suite where the PI's office is within the CPRT research group.  The student would attend all research group meetings so that he/she would have exposure to the other studies ongoing in the CPRT research group.  Direct supervision would be by the PI for the entire research fellowship program.
