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, followed by a semester of research in pharmacology.
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. The research course (for credit) allows students to generate their own research project in pharmacology, mentored by graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.
We will not be accepting applications for this coming year. Thank you for your interest.
LEAP is funded by a grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health
