US Pharmacopeia Announces 2013-2014 Global Fellowships
Each year, USP conducts a competitive process for selecting fellows who are engaged in full-time study in a PhD or Pharm. D. program, medical school, or dental school, and whose works are directly relevant to USP’s priorities.
For the 2013-2014 academic year, three $50,000 USP Global Fellowship awards have been presented to the following students:
• Adam L. Kaylor, PhD candidate, Georgia Institute of Technology, School of Chemistry and Biochemistry
Area of Research—Development of a new pulsed plasma ion source for counterfeit drug analyses by portable ion-mobility spectrometry and rapid liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS).
• Haichen Nie, M.S., Purdue University, College of Pharmacy, Department of Industrial and Physical Pharmacy
Area of Research—Sustainable medicines for Africa—Development of monographs and associated knowledge to increase access to HIV/AIDS medicines for resistant infections (Darunavir-Ritonavir).
• Sharla M. Peters, Postdoctoral candidate, Howard University, College of Medicine, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Area of Research—Development of a multiplex real-time polymerase chain reaction assay for the detection of ruminant material in adulterated products.
Each of the Global Fellows will communicate regularly with a scientific liaison from USP headquarters in Rockville, Maryland, providing updates on his or her work and the relevance of its progress to USP’s priorities. In addition, each fellow will be invited to give a poster presentation at an USP-sponsored meeting or event during the course of the academic year.
