an IBP member program

Academic Level:
For most summer research programs, this is your upcoming status as of the fall. Always check with the individual program's website for details.

Undergraduates - Junior

Description:
This ten-week summer research experience focuses on learning how scientific discovery at the bench can be translated to treatment of disease. Students will train with a faculty mentor and carry out an independent research project in Duke's Department of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology. The purpose of the fellowship is to: 1) immerse students in areas of biomedical science such as pharmacology that are not readily accessible on undergraduate campuses, 2) expose students to the connection between biomedical research and drug discovery, and 3) create networking opportunities for students to pursue graduate study in biomedical science.

In addition to a rich scientific program, SURPH@Duke will feature visits to unique Duke destinations and excursions in Durham and the nearby Research Triangle Park. The fellows are encouraged to explore this unique rapidly, developing part of the nation.
