The UK College of Pharmacy offers a ten-week programs for talented undergraduate students to participate in paid research in Pharmaceutical Sciences. Program participants:
- perform independent research under the supervision of faculty mentors, graduate students, or postdoctoral fellows,
- give a scientific presentation that describes their accomplishments, and
- have the opportunity to contribute to front-line research in Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Students work with faculty who are engaged in research in areas including preclinical studies of drug actions, fundamental mechanisms of drug actions at the molecular level, and the design, synthesis, development, and formulation of new drug products. This program allows undergraduate students to obtain hands-on laboratory experience in state-of-the-art research facilities.
