Neurogenetics Research Training

Faculty in NYU Langone’s Division of Neurogenetics are dedicated mentors, and offer research training opportunities to medical students, residents, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and clinical fellows.

Resident and Medical Student Research

Residents and medical students interested in research opportunities should contact the investigators below.

Research Opportunities with Dr. Nicolas J. Abreu

With Nicolas J. Abreu, MD, trainees can engage in research projects exploring the diagnostic odyssey for patients with neurogenetic conditions, outcome measure development, family and provider perspectives on genetic testing and counseling, and phenotypic and mutational expansion of neurogenetic disorders.

Research Opportunities with Dr. Devorah Segal

With Devorah Segal, MD, PhD, trainees can engage in research projects that retrospectively examine imaging and pathology characteristics of several pediatric low-grade gliomas to better understand long-term prognosis and guide treatment. We are also studying brain MRI abnormalities in NF1 to determine whether some are more likely to develop into gliomas.


The Division of Neurogenetics offers a one-year fellowship for applicants who wish to obtain further clinical and research training in neurogenetic disorders and lysosomal storage disorders. To learn more about our clinical and translational research fellowship program, please contact Nicolas J. Abreu, MD, at

Postdoctoral Research

NYU Langone’s Center for Cognitive Neurology is pleased to offer National Institutes of Health (NIH) T32–funded postdoctoral positions in neurodegenerative research. The goal of this program is to train scientists and clinician–scientists to be future leaders in the field of neurodegenerative research and the aging brain. Mentoring support in clinical neurogenetics can be arranged with our division for appropriate applicants.
