Welcome to our podcast series, “My Life As A Research Assistant”. This series is brought to you by Kessler Foundation, where we are changing the lives of people with disabilities.

Research assistants are on the front lines of our research studies—collecting data, conducting interviews, testing subjects—and are the face of Kessler Foundation to our research study participants. In 2020, Kessler Foundation was ranked among one of the Best Nonprofits to Work For and Best Places to Work in New Jersey (kesslerfoundation.org/press-release/…ork-new-jersey)!

Throughout this series, we’ll meet up with research assistants from our centers for mobility, spinal cord injury, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and neuroscience and neuropsychology who have been with the Foundation for over a year, and some who are now senior research assistants, nurses, medical students, graduate students, and postdocs, and those who applied their experience to other professions.

In this episode, I met up with Michele Barry who worked as a research assistant/research coordinator in our Center for Stroke Research from 2015-2019, where she worked with patients who have suffered from a stroke and assessed them for various resulting cognitive deficits. Currently, Michele is a project manager at Mt. Sinai Health Systems in Northern New Jersey. Listen in as Michele talks to Joan Banks-Smith, Creative Producer for Kessler Foundation about his experience at the Foundation.
