Program for Industry Exploration (PIE)

The Program for Industry Exploration (PIE) has organized a site visit to Burleson Research Technologies (BRT) on Monday, April 28 at 3:30pm. BRT is an RTP-based Contract Research Organization (CRO) that provides proof-of-concept, pre-clinical, and clinical study services to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies from around the world. The site visit to BRT will include an introduction to the company and the type of work they do, followed by a Q&A/networking session. If you have any interest in working at a CRO, or an interest in learning about drug development and the services that support drug development, then this is a great opportunity to learn and extend your network.

Site Visit Details

Monday, April 28 @ 3:30pm (transportation will be provided and will leave UNC around 3pm). The site visit is scheduled to conclude at 5pm and it is anticipated that we will arrive back on campus between 5:30-6pm.

Please contact me at if you are interested in attending, or if you have any questions. Registration will close on April 22 so that a list of attendees can be provided to BRT prior to the visit.
