Date:4/16/2008

Rockville, Md., April 16, 2008 The U.S. Pharmacopeial (USP) Convention today announced its 2008 Summer Internship Program participants. USP is the official standards-setting body for pharmaceutical and over-the-counter medications in the United States. It also sets standards that are widely recognized around the world for food ingredients and dietary supplements. USPs internship program offers the opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to spend twelve weeks at USP working on projects that support the organizations mission to advance public health through good quality medicines and foods. The projects will focus on the quality of manufactured medicines, compounded medicines, food ingredients and dietary supplements; patient care; global public health; and health policy.

Six students were chosen from an applicant pool of more than 100 students from around the world in a competitive selection process. The following participants will receive stipends during their work at USP, which begins on May 19, 2008:

  • Lauren Girard: Pursuing a Master of Science degree at American University

    Project: Quality of Manufactured Medicines investigation of the qualitative and quantitative determinations of hazardous contaminants in pharmaceutical polyols like Glycerin.

The students will present the results of their projects to USP staff at the conclusion of the 12-week program.

In addition to working on a defined project, interns will meet with USP staff to gain an understanding of the scope and importance of USP programs and services. Participants will also have the opportunity to visit professional associations and federal government agencies to discuss practice and policy issues and learn about career paths available in public health.
