Application for Spring 2015 IS NOW OPEN.
Interested in clinical research?
The North Carolina Collaborative (NCC) Summer Research Experience Program provides a high-quality research experience for undergraduate students during the summer academic break. The program capitalizes on world-renowned training programs in place at Duke University under the leadership Dr. Danny Benjamin, professor of pediatrics. The team of instructors includes Duke adult medicine and pediatrics faculty members, a writing instructor, a statistician, and operations staff.
The faculty of the NCC Summer Research Experience Program is actively involved in NIH-sponsored research in clinical pharmacology, therapeutics, trials, and pharmaco-epidemiology. In addition to these activities, members of the instructional team have a track record of dedication to education of trainees at all levels. Combined, these faculty members have over 200 publications with trainees as either first author or co-author.

The Duke Undergraduate Research Society’s newly restructured Research Ambassadors Program will consist of a group of 10-15 juniors and seniors serving as mentors for underclassmen. Selected Research Ambassadors will provide guidance regarding getting involved in research here at Duke. Instead of pairing mentors with mentees, we will feature profiles and contact information for each Research Ambassador on our website. This will provide underclassmen the opportunity to select and contact their Research Ambassador of choice with any questions/concerns, setting up meetings if necessary.
- semester-long commitment
- mandatory training session
- Research Ambassadors Kick-Off
- holding a mentor “Office Hour” once a month
- developing relationships with underclassmen mentees

Come learn about Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories’ Summer Undergraduate Research and Innovative Ph.D. Programs!
Who: Dr. Keisha John will be on campus to discuss both programs
When: Monday, October 29th at 5:00pm
Where: Bio Sci 130
Learn about the many opportunities to conduct biological research during the summer and in graduate school in Cancer, Neuroscience, Quantitate Biology, Bioinformatics, Structural Biology, Genomics, RNAi, Epigenetics, Gene Regulation and Plant Biology.
Unique features of the program are:
- Reduced time to PhD degree – median 4.6 years compared to national average of 7 years
- Course work and laboratory rotations in separate phases in the first year
- Emphasis on the principles of scientific logic and reasoning
- Extensive student mentoring through a “two-tier” mentoring program
- Financial support from the program ($31,500 annual stipend with full remission of tuition and fees), uncoupling the funding from the mentor

“Poster Presentation Workshop” – 6:00 pm, April 11, 2012 (Soc Sci 119)
To all students who are in the process of preparing a research poster: are you
confused about what to include? Stressed by deadlines for Visible Thinking, an
academic conference, or independent study project?
If so, DURS has your fix! We will be offering tips and advice for both
designing and presenting successful posters at our Research Poster Workshop
on Wednesday, April 11th from 6 – 7 PM (Soc Sci 119). Emphasis will
be placed on scientific posters presenting work from independent study
projects. We will have many student examples and will go over the DOs and
DON’Ts when making scientific posters.
