Education & Enrichment Program

The Duke Skin Disease Research Center (SDRC) is offering mentored research opportunities for undergraduates and medical students from Duke University and other institutions for the summer of 2015 and the 2015-2016 academic year.  This program is designed to build a diverse and inclusive community of individuals with interest in biomedical research investigating skin biology and skin diseases. The Duke SDRC defines diversity in the biomedical research community broadly including but not limited to racial, ethnic, disadvantaged backgrounds, disabilities and LGBT. We believe that through an increasingly diverse biomedical research community we will broaden the breadth and depth of research and patient care to the benefit of society.   Rising second and third year undergraduates and rising 3rd year medical students interested in research careers in biomedical research, skin biology and skin diseases are invited to apply.   Mentors for this program will include members of the Duke Skin Disease Research Center. This community of researchers involves members from the Departments of Dermatology, Medicine, Pharmacology and Cancer Biology, Surgery, Pathology, Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Immunology, Chemistry and Biomedical Engineering.   Research activities include basic and translational projects and are located on the Duke Medical Center Campus.
