NCC Summer Research students publish paper on pediatric drug safety

February 6, 2015 – The high school and college students published their first scholarly paper in the American Journal of Perinatology.

The North Carolina Collaborative Summer Research Experience Program hit a major milestone last month: its first published journal article co-authored by high school and college students.

The paper, “Rifampin Use and Safety in Hospitalized Infants,” was published in the online edition of the American Journal of Perinatology. The authors include three high school and college-level students and one high school science teacher participating in the program.

The NCC Summer Research Experience Program was launched in 2013 to provide a high-quality research experience for undergraduate students, high school students, and high school teachers during the summer academic break.
