Summer Research Program

Our Summer Research Program is a 10-week research experience supported by a competitive stipend offered by the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences in collaboration with external research academic institutions and organizations.

The purpose of the program is to identify and introduce students to the excitement and importance of biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences research through a mix of educational and research activities.

Through extensive interactions with faculty and direct research experiences, our goal is to enhance students' understanding of the research process, the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary research and the opportunity for pursuing a career in academia, industry, and governmental agencies.
