At Drew, you can have the kinds of real-world lab research experiences that most students won’t get until attending graduate school or working in the professional world.
Under the direction of accomplished scientists, Drew students perform research, publish papers and win awards. Many then go on to careers with top employers or attend graduate school at prestigious universities.
What’s more, Drew’s prime location in America’s medicine cabinet means easier access to opportunities. Our region has one of the most extensive concentrations of corporate headquarters in the nation, including 14 of the world’s 20 largest pharmaceutical companies.
The Residential School on Medicinal Chemistry and Biology in Drug Discovery (ResMed) is designed for chemists and biologists who want to increase their understanding of the basic principles of drug discovery and early development.
Drew's RISE Associate Fellow Dr. William Campbell has guided and mentored students at Drew for more than 20 years, leaving lasting impressions. A former Merck scientist, he helped develop an anti-parasitic drug that the Nobel Prize committee recognized for treating River Blindness and Lymphatic Filariasis. Each year, he continues to lecture to honors science students at Drew.
