Academic researcher« Back to Glossary Index
An academic researcher is a type of researcher associated with a university or medical professional school (e.g., medical school or dental school). In medical research, an academic researcher may have a PhD, MD, or both, or they may have another type of medical, allied health, or social science related degree.
