Student Spotlight: Ian DeAndrea-Lazarus

Ian DeAndrea-Lazarus, M.D. and Ph.D. candidate in the Medical Scientist Training Program, was awarded the distinguished Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Individual Predoctoral Fellowship to Promote Diversity in Health Related Research (F31) from the National Center for Deafness and Communication Disorders. This fellowship will support DeAndrea-Lazarus’ research using electroencephalography (EEG) that compares the effect that deafness and early access to sign language has on visuospatial attention in people who are deaf.

The Next Generation

The Next Generation

An introduction to a group of up-and-coming researchers who are on the frontlines of understanding Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). These efforts are bolstered by a large contingent of clinician researchers who serve patients and families with these disorders and are critical partners in efforts to advance care through research. The unique research setting of an academic medical center provides opportunities for collaboration that gives these researchers a platform to investigate new ways to understand these complex disorders.
