35th Research Showcase

This year more than any other, it's important to recognize the outstanding research contributions our students and trainees have shared with our college and the scientific community.

35th Annual Research Showcase
Dean Julie Johnson

Welcome

A letter from the Dean

"All of us in the UF College of Pharmacy take great pride in the research contributions made by our students and trainees, and this event provides a meaningful way for them to share their findings with our college and the scientific community."

Welcome to the University of Florida College of Pharmacy’s 35th Annual Research Showcase. This event grows bigger and better every year — and this year is no exception — with more than 100 poster presentations and an outstanding lineup scheduled for the oral competition. All of us in the UF College of Pharmacy take great pride in the research contributions made by our students and trainees, and this event provides a meaningful way for them to share their findings with our college and the scientific community.

In keeping with the tradition of welcoming an accomplished scientist as our keynote speaker, we are thrilled to welcome former Gator Issam Zineh back to campus. Zineh earned a master’s degree in public health policy and administration and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in pharmacogenomics at UF.  He also served on faculty in the UF Colleges of Pharmacy and Medicine from 2004-08.  We are excited to welcome him back “home” and are proud of all he has accomplished in the pharmaceutical sciences. His experience and training at UF have served him well in his current role as director of the Office of Clinical Pharmacology at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. His presentation on bridging science, policy and communication should be an enlightening topic for our faculty, students and trainees, and we can all appreciate the insight he brings from the FDA.

Congratulations to all our students and trainees presenting this week and a special thank you to the faculty and staff who have supported their efforts. It’s been a remarkable year for research in the UF College of Pharmacy, and the 35th Annual Research Showcase offers a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all our achievements.
