I came with my own funding, joining a group working on the an ongoing project. The project was initiated from a screen in search of novel immunogenic candidates in Alzheimer's patients. During the period of four months that I have worked there, we have successfully completed several pivotal experiments.
Currently, we are working on preparing the manuscript concerned with this work.
