ResearchRx promotes scientific literacy, engages pharmacy students with research methods and current topics and encourages student involvement with research at the University of Kansas. Organization leaders strive to help students make connections with KU’s prestigious faculty and offer guidance on potential careers in pharmacy research. They also encourage first-year students to enroll in the newly established Pharm.D. Research Certificate Program (PRCP) for guidance on potential careers in pharmacy research.
