Marshall School of Pharmacy sponsors first Research Days event

Posters and presentations are on display  at the School of Pharmacy through today, Oct. 29, as faculty and students showcase their research projects during the school’s first Research Days event.

Dr. Chris Gillette, event organizer and assistant professor of pharmacy practice, administration and research, said the three-day event is meant to encourage pharmacy students to explore areas of research, as well as serve as a catalyst for interdisciplinary engagement.

“We hope this event will become an annual platform that allows students to see the wide spectrum of research opportunities available to them not only through the School of Pharmacy, but also through interdisciplinary projects with the College of Health Professions, School of Medicine and other sciences across Marshall’s campus,” Gillette said.  “We will feature research in areas like pharmacy/medical education, pharmaceutics, immunology and neuroscience.”

The posters are  on display in the lobby of the School of Pharmacy, located on the campus of the Huntington Veterans Affairs Medical Center at 1542 Spring Valley Dr.

The researchers will be available starting at noon today in the lobby at the School of Pharmacy. The session is open to all  faculty, staff and students, and lunch will be served.
