Three graduate students and a postdoc fellow from the University of Florida College of Pharmacy took home half of the eight student abstract awards presented at the American College of Clinical Pharmacology, or ACCP, Annual Meeting held Sept. 25-27 in Bethesda, Md. The stellar showing featured scientific poster presentations by graduate students and a postdoc fellow from the department of pharmaceutics, including Amelia Deitchman, a fourth-year student, Naveen Mangal, a third-year student, Tanaya Vaidya, a first-year student, and Sumit Basu, a postdoc fellow. A panel of judges selected Vaidya as best presenter and the recipient of the A. Colburn Wayne Memorial Award for the best paper at the conference.

The group will have their abstracts published online in the ACCP’s Clinical Pharmacology in Drug Development journal. All the student winners were also invited to attend the Honors and Awards Regents Dinner and presented with a certificate and honorarium.
