Description: 

The Department of Pharmacology annually sponsors a competitive summer undergraduate research fellowship program for rising seniors in undergraduate science programs. (Other students will be considered, although with lower priority). This program is designed to give students planning a career in the biomedical sciences an opportunity to conduct research under the direction of a research pharmacologist.

Training in the Carolina Summer Fellowship Program includes hands-on research conducted by the student in the laboratory of a supervising faculty member, a weekly seminar program to acquaint the student with projects and research activities of the entire faculty, and culminates in a colloquium where all students present brief reports on their summer research projects. In addition, the program offers a variety of enrichment and recreational activities, including a visit to local pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Chapel Hill, home of the first state university and one of the most attractive college towns in America, is located in the beautiful Piedmont region of North Carolina-close to the Research Triangle Park, one of America's most dynamic environments for advanced technology.
