Global Gators Symposium

13th Symposium

June 3-4, 2022 | Basel, Switzerland

On behalf of the University of Florida College of Pharmacy, it’s my pleasure to welcome you to the 13th Global Gators Symposium in Basel, Switzerland.

This i certainly a time for celebration, as our Global Gators community can safely gather for the first time since Reims, France in 2019. The world and our college have changed immensely in three years, but the interests we share around new developments in clinical pharmacy and clinical pharmacology continue to unify us as pharmacy Gators.

During this year’s symposium, we will pay special tribute to Hartmut Derendorf, who passed away unexpectedly in November 2020. He was a giant in clinical pharmacology and a beloved faculty member in the UF College of Pharmacy.

In 1997, he organized the first Global Gators Symposium in Germany, and for more than two decades, helped unite

the Gator pharmacy community through this biennial meeting. It is hard to find anyone who knew more people or had a bigger network in the pharmaceutical sciences than Hartmut — and this symposium reflects his worldwide connections.

We greatly miss his generosity, humility and passion for improving the profession every day. May we all cherish our time together as Gators this weekend and strive to continue the remarkable legacy that Hartmut left behind.

Julie Johnson, Pharm.D.

Dean and Distinguished Professor
