PSCP welcomes its inaugural 2013 Pharmacy Research Summer Interns! We were pleased to receive over 25 applications for the five internships available. These students were selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants and represent both PCSP Pharmacy Students and pre-pharmacy students from across South Carolina.
2013 PRSI interns include Evan Bryson (pre-pharmacy student at TriCounty Technical College), Edana Holliday (PCSP rising P2), Marina Leon (PCSP rising P2), Lauren Linder (PCSP rising P3), and Arathi Pillay (PCSP rising P2). Interns will spend eight weeks engaged in faculty-mentored pharmacy research projects. The interns are participating in diverse research projects that span exploring how pharmacists compounded pain gels cross the skin, to understanding the molecular markers that identify the transition of human papillomavirus (HPV) from infection to cancer, to determining the rationale basis for using haloperidol in the treatment of agitation in the intensive care unit. As part of this intensive research experience, the students also participate in weekly journal club and scientific writing seminars. In addition, in the tradition of the PC motto “as we live we serve,” the interns have volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and are painting the inside of the current Habitat House in Laurens. Come and join us the morning of July 23, 2013 for the end of summer research symposium and learn about the great research projects at PCSP. Thanks go out to our phenomenal PRSI mentors: Drs. Asbill, Freeland, Happe, Messersmith, and Romero-Sandoval.
