I'm thinking of applying to a research lab at city of hope, does anyone know about this place? I heard they cure cancer.
Which labs are the better ones and which ones should be avoided?
COH has therapies reaching shelf life in 2019. They have nothing in the pipeline and are cutting departments now low lessen the blow. Unless they have some miracles, there is little hope.
Say what you want. City of Hope is Top Notch; only the best celebrities and athletes endorse COH. Lance Armstrong is a huge supporter--just google it.
City of HOPE gives you the best third world surgeons and researchers money can buy! (Your tax money and donation dollars, of course).
Major layoffs and forced retirement is coming soon...
Yeah, I've heard a lot of bad things about this place. They scam a lot of donation money, yet are always in the red. People running the labs and management are definitely on the take. I heard that some of the support staff were dealing pot.
Horrible place. Run by a bunch of a-holes, and labs are full of bitter, nasty spiteful little women.
They have their successes, and failures like any other medical facility. The are better with some types of cancers over others. So far, it's 1 remission to 4 deaths as far as experience of friends and family. You really need to "research" what specific types of research they do, what facilities they have, and where they get their funds, whether strickly dependent on donation, grant, or have a steady income stream. As far as I know, they do not produce a product, so it's likely that job security will be dependent on income from donations and grants. The areas surrounding Duarte are pretty high priced neighborhoods as far as living expenses, except maybe for Azusa or Baldwin Park to the south. I grew up in neighboring Arcadia, but even employed as an engineer, can't afford to live there.
