Testimonials from our Volunteers, Interns and Observers!
Sara Varadharajulu - Internship
"Interning at the Sean N. Parker Center over the summer was an amazing learning experience! I had the opportunity to be assist with numerous clinical trials and gain insight into the regulatory processes involved. My main focus at the clinic was conducting a study exploring skin barrier composition and water loss in allergic and asthmatic patients. This study allowed me to interact with patients and their families one-on-one and learn how to collect and analyze data. In addition, I was able to help run a health psychology study regarding virtual reality, shadow patients visits, and present new research, such the use of Dupilumab to treat food allergies, at staff meetings. Also, through closely working with the staff at the Center, I was able to gain incredible mentors who guided me through many educational and professional choices. I believe my internship at SNP will prove invaluable as I finish my undergraduate education in Physiological Sciences and enter medicine."
Sharad Chandra - Internship
"During this internship, I learned about how clinical research trials are developed and conducted as well as how these clinical trials can be used to determine the efficacy and safety of biologics in improving desensitization to certain allergens. Interning at the Sean N. Parker Center has also helped me build upon my current research knowledge and skills so that I can contribute more effectively as a member of a research team. Everyone at the center was really helpful and supportive in explaining different procedures and protocols and answering all my questions. It was exciting and rewarding to interact with the patients who came to the center. This experience has helped me develop valuable skills and knowledge that will be useful in my future academic interests during undergraduate college and medical school."
Sarah Alonzi - Internship
"As a rising junior aspiring to pursue a degree in health psychology research, my summer internship at the Sean N. Parker Center was an incredible experience which gave me the opportunity to learn more about the clinical application of health psychology, regulatory affairs, and food allergy research. During the Center’s weekly meetings, I was able to present on scientific articles and learn about IRB approval of future studies. I shadowed the Center’s therapist and learned about the application of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in clinic. The highlight of my summer at the Center was taking the lead on a health psychology study examining the effect of virtual reality headsets with interactive games on anxiety and pain during pediatric phlebotomy procedures. Interning at the Center was a unique experience because interns are able to tailor their work to their educational and career goals, seek mentorship from an interdisciplinary team, and form professional connections with undergraduate students from different universities. From REDCap data entry to participant interviews, I’m certain that the skills I learned at the Center will prove invaluable in my future occupational and academic pursuits."
