Siler City, NC - Three students at Jordan-Matthews High School, Brittany Rachel, Frank Rivera, and Sean Wilkerson, have been accepted to the Launch into Education About Pharmacology (LEAP) program. LEAP is a part of the Raising Interest in Science Education (RISE) program that is sponsored by Duke University.

The students will participate in a three-week summer program and attend five additional two-hour visits to Duke during the upcoming school year. While involved in the program, the students will learn about pharmacology. They will work with scientists who study the interactions between drugs and the body and finally apply what they have learned to the development of a novel drug. Students will attend lectures, discussions, debates, laboratory visits, go on field trips, and participate in hands-on experiments.

During the fall students will work with Duke faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students to develop and carry out their project. The program will culminate with the students presenting their project at the annual meeting of the North Carolina Student Academy of Sciences. They will also submit it for entry in the North Carolina Regional Science Fair.
