Program Description

Those accepted to the program will receive a competitive stipend, tuition and basic health insurance. Students are also eligible to participate in the Takeru Higuchi Intersearch Program, which allows them to conduct a portion of their research at the Victorian College of Pharmacy, which is a part of Monash University located in Melbourne Australia. Ideally, the students select a surrogate advisor who specializes in an area of research outside that of the primary advisor, allowing for more breadth to their overall research project. Similarly, many students are participants in the NIH sponsored Pharmaceutical Chemistry Biotechnology Training Grant, which allows students to complete a summer internship at a pharmaceutical company specializing in the formulation, analysis and delivery of biotechnology products. Although this industrial internship is a requirement for those involved in the training grant, any student in the program may participate in an internship at a pharmaceutical company after discussion with the his or her research advisor. The department is a full member of the Globalization of Pharmaceutical Education Network (GPEN) a professional organization that meets biannually at other member institutions. Senior students are typically selected to participate in these events. The GPEN meeting, now attended by 43 academic institutions across the world, was founded at KU in1996 by Professor Ronald Borchardt. Participants in these programs have generally found the experiences to be extremely beneficial to their overall experience at KU.
