We are excited to announce the 2020 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program at Rutgers University. The REU program is intended for highly motivated undergraduates interested in a research career in the pharmaceutical and environmental health sciences. Students are provided with an opportunity to conduct full-time research in areas related to Pharmacology and Toxicology, Environmental Health Sciences, Pharmaceutics, Medicinal Chemistry, Chemical Biology, and Clinical Pharmacy. Previous experience performing independent laboratory or clinical research is not required. Mentors are not needed to apply.
The 10-week paid program will run May 26 through Jul 31, 2020. Students must be available for the entire 10-week period. Training includes hands-on research conducted in the laboratories or clinical practices of faculty members, roundtable discussions of research progress, and seminars on research careers and activities of the faculty. Students also participate in career development workshops, a field study sampling for environmental contaminants, and a field trip to a NJ pharmaceutical company.
