To address the declining number of people who aspire to science-related careers, Duke has received funding from the National Institutes of Health to provide an engaging 2-week summer science course to rising Duke sophomores.
The free mini-course provides students with a glimpse of how basic concepts in biology and chemistry can be applied to biomedical and behavioral issues in every day life. In addition, the course will prepare students for more advanced courses in biology and chemistry.
