Individual departments, labs, and centers at UNC help to sustain the Summer Of Learning And Research program and we appreciate that help very much. However, we need additional financial support from corporate benefactors to make this program a success. The following are just a few ways that your company can help prepare the next generation of researchers for careers in the biomedical research enterprise. If you want to help, please contact Jessica Harrell, SOLAR Director, by email: or phone: (919) 843-1570 . Thank you.
