Pharmacy Research Day
Pharmacy Innovation Research Day is held annually during Pharmacist Awareness Month (PAM) in March, and 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 speakers, and Snappy Synopsis - a speed round of graduate research, where students present their work in under five minutes in language that engages non-researchers.
9:00 - 11:00 a.m. - Poster Competition (Health Sciences Centre Main Foyer): The annual poster competition features research of undergraduate and graduate students in the School of Pharmacy. Competition takes place between 9:00 and 11:00, but poster displays will be set up until 4:00 p.m.
11:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m. - Snappy Synopsis (Lecture Theatre B): Snap up a nugget of some of the exciting research being conducted by graduate pharmacy students as they practice their academic, presentation and research communication skills. Using props and a single slide, students will have five minutes or less to replay how their work will make a difference to non-researchers.
12:00 -1:00 p.m. "Biosimilars – The time has arrived!" by Dr. Jeremy B. Desai, President and CEO of Apotex (Main Auditorium).
1:00 - 2:00 p.m. “Targeting the Autophagy-Lysosome Pathway for Neurodegenerative Disease” by Dr. John Shacka, University of Alabama-Birmingham (Main Auditorium).

Lunch will be included at the 12:00 session.
