John Lewis, PhD
LRP Ambassador
Research Interest: Addiction Science, Cognitive Psychology, Psychopharmacology
The NIH Loan Repayment Program helped mitigate the psychological and financial burdens of student loans after graduate school, allowing greater focus toward my postdoctoral studies. The program was easy to apply for and well worth the effort. I strongly recommend all eligible trainees apply. I'm pleased to act as a program ambassador and happy to share my experience with potential applicants.
Yenisel Cruz-Almeida, MSPH, PhD
Currently a reviewer for LRP clinical research
My research interests are to elucidate the underlying nervous system mechanisms associated with increased clinical pain in older adults that impacts cognitive and physical function. This area of interest stems from my previous multidisciplinary research training in the fields of Neuroscience and Epidemiology
