Summer Undergraduate Research in Pharmacology


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
For over 20 years, the Department of Pharmacology at Case Western Reserve University, has sponsored the Summer Undergraduate Research Program for three to eight students per year. Generous funding has been provided by the American Society for Pharmacology and Therapeutics and from the HHMI-sponsored Summer Program in Undergraduate Research (SPUR), which is coordinated by the Department of Biology.

The Summer Undergraduate Research Program provides "hands on" research experience for sophomores and juniors in the area of molecular pharmacology. Although the projects will vary, each is related to a common theme - elucidation of the molecular mechanisms underlying the interaction of chemical agents such as drugs, hormones and neurotransmitters with biological systems.

Students spend at least ten weeks during the summer working on a research project in a lab selected according to their interests. In addition to research, weekly seminars are presented to acquaint the students with the broad range of research projects in the Pharmacology Department.
