Info Session: Monday, September 25, 2023
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Eshelman School of Pharmacy’s Division of Pharmacoengineering & Molecular Pharmaceutics (DPMP) is engaged in research and education in drug delivery options to optimize the therapeutic efficacy of pharmacologically and immunologically active agents. It is a multidisciplinary endeavor requiring knowledge in pharmaceutics, chemistry, engineering, biochemistry, biologics, pharmacokinetics, drug metabolism, and biology.
DPMP is the only graduate program concentrated solely on delivery of pharmaceuticals and vaccines (drug delivery). You might be interested in this program if you are curious about research applying lipid nanoparticles, polymers, cells, and viruses to deliver therapies for cancer, infectious & autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular conditions, and neurodegenerative diseases.
DPMP students are from backgrounds like Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
PhD students are supported at $35,000+/yr stipend plus tuition, fees, and health insurance without a teaching assistant requirement. Students have the option of selecting labs after performing rotations. DPMP facilities are state of the art buildings and core research facilities all surrounded by the Research Triangle comprised of big and small Pharma, major universities, and other research institutions.
There will be a virtual information session on Monday, September 25 at 6:00 PM EST. Register here.
Participants are welcome to submit a question to be answered at the webinar.
After the event, a recording of the webinar will be available on the program’s webpage. Last year’s webinar is already posted.
