USP Global Fellowship Awards Program Call for Applications
Date:3/19/2013

Rockville, Md. (PRWEB) March 19, 2013

Helping develop the next generation of scientists focusing on medicines quality, the United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) is now accepting applications for its Global Fellowship Awards Program. The three US$50,000 fellowships opportunities are directed to applicants who have been accepted for full-time study in a doctoral program (Ph.D., Pharm.D., Dr.P.H., or similar), or medical, veterinary, or dental school; those who have been accepted to a fellowship program in a nationally accredited academic institution; or those who were awarded a postdoctoral research (non-faculty) appointment.

“The chosen USP Global Fellows will have a unique opportunity to build a foundation in regulatory and compendial science that could lead to career opportunities in industry or regulatory agencies around the world,” said Angela Long, M.S., vice president of USP’s global alliances and organizational affairs. “They will work closely with USP scientific staff and volunteers from USP’s standards-setting bodies, who are experts in regulatory and compendial science from all over the world. And they will work on research that potentially could have an impact on national and international regulatory requirements for medicines,” she explains. The awards are granted to researchers whose proposed research addresses a specific USP scientific or research need.

Fellows are encouraged to apply in a variety of USP focus areas, which may include:

  •     Flow cytometry in biological applications that could lead to General Chapter additions/improvements and/or methods for monograph use;
  •     Field portable spectroscopic techniques combined with chemometric approaches to counterfeit detection;
  •     Creation of new topical/dermal dosage formulations as use for reference materials suitable for in vitro apparatus performance verification testing;
  •     Purity assessments (protein concentration determination assays);
  •     New methods to differentiate excipients;
  •     Detection of counterfeit drugs through excipient characterization;
  •     Development of supplemental information for articles of botanical origin to facilitate    compendia compliance; or
  •     Development and validation of analytical methods to assess the quality and safety of any nanotechnology derived food ingredients.
