UNE College of Pharmacy

June 09, 2017

Six UNE students have been selected to receive Dean’s Student Research Fellowships from the College of Pharmacy. Each student has been matched with a faculty member and will be a vital part of their research lab.

This opportunity provides students with hands-on experience outside of the classroom, while allowing faculty to impart expertise in their specialized fields and teach research skills in the context of their laboratory setting. Students will gain technical knowledge by working on these projects as well as proficiency in planning, execution and presentation of research findings.
