NCC Summer Research Experience Program

The North Carolina Collaborative (NCC) Summer Research Experience Program is recruiting high school, college students and teachers for its 2017 session! The NCC program provides an intensive research experience over 8 weeks in the summer, focusing on pharmaco-epidemiological research methodology and scientific writing skills. Participants are placed in teams and matched with Duke faculty mentors to work on an original, hypothesis-driven project, progressing through draft figures and tables, an abstract, a PowerPoint presentation, and a written thesis. The research experience is supplemented with content-related tutorials provided by Duke medicine and pediatrics faculty members, a statistician, a medical writer, and other research staff. The program also includes an intensive medical ethics seminar on the responsible conduct of research.
  • College students will receive $3,200.
  • High school students will receive $2,600.
  • Teachers participating in the program will also be compensated for the 8-week commitment.
Deadline for applications is on January 09, 2017. Check out the program website for more information:
