Pharmacology at Uniformed Services University. USU is the military medical
school located on the grounds of the Walter Reed National Military Medical
Centre in Bethesda, MD, within walking distance of the Medical Center metro

in spine fusion can lead to neuropathic pain. We employ a variety of
molecular, cellular, behavioral and surgical techniques to probe the
response of sensory neurons and the spinal cord to these manipulations to
the spinal column. We are seeking applicants who are recent graduates in the
biological sciences (or graduating this winter) with a strong interest in
conducting medical research in a collaborative academic environment.
