Why Big Pharma did not respond to COVID-19? – Paid undergraduate summer research opportunity available

I would like to make you aware of the Summer Programme For Undergraduate Research (SPUR). SPUR is a six week active research based and paid (€ 1,500, tax free) experiential learning programme which offers you the opportunity to work together with a faculty mentor on a real research project. This is an excellent opportunity to get insights into management research and develop skills that make you stand out from your peers. SPUR is open to all pre-final year UG students.

I am mentoring a student in the project “The curse of specialization: Why Big Pharma did not respond to COVID-19.” In this project, you will have the opportunity to explore why big pharmaceutical companies are seemingly reluctant to engage in the development of drugs and vaccines against COVID-19. As a SPUR student, support the data collection process and the data preparation process. A full description of the project and the tasks of the SPUR student is attached.

For information or to apply for SPUR please see https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/experiential-learning/research or the SPUR Moodle page at Maynooth. Please send me a personal message if you would like to receive further information regarding the project.
