Dr. Jose’s commitment to neuroscience has also involved volunteering to peer-review manuscripts for four journals and being a journal club tutor in the Brain and Mind course for 2nd year students at Weill Cornell Medicine over three years. All these activities gave him a deep understanding of Neuroscience and a desire to continue learning while sharing his knowledge.
Dr. Jose studied English since age 10 at school and used it as primary language throughout his career.
