(June 2016) Project ALS is pleased to announce the 2016 David Glaser Mass General/Project ALS Summer Intern program.
Now in its fifth year, the Glaser Internship program provides talented students with incentives to pursue careers in ALS research and care. Co-directed by renowned ALS neurologists, Merit Cudkowicz and James Berry, the Glaser Interns participate in such activities as ALS clinical rotations, physician and biobank shadowing, and clinical research coordination. They participate on-site at Massachusetts General Hospital, which is home to one of the most comprehensive ALS clinics in the world.
The David Glaser Mass General/Project ALS Internships are named in honor and memory of David Glaser, a real estate entrepreneur, husband and father, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2013. The Glaser Family is committed to attracting top students to the ALS field, and supporting their talents to cultivate the next generation of ALS researchers and clinicians.
