Pharmacy Research Day

Pharmacy Research Day celebrates advancements in healthcare collaboration, drug discovery and delivery, health outcomes and teaching and learning research in pharmacy.

The day includes a poster competition, guest speaker, and Snappy Synopsis - a speed round of graduate research, where students present their work in under five minutes in language that engages non-researchers.
