Pharmacy Research Day

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of our 2023 School of Pharmacy Research Day!


Every fall we hold Pharmacy Research Day, as part of Memorial University's week-long celebration of research across campuses. This year, the School of Pharmacy's Research Day is December 1. It's a chance for us to highlight faculty and student research here in the school, while continuing to build and promote a culture of research.

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

Once again this year we've scheduled Pharmacy Research Day on Friday, December 1, 2023, to coincide with Memorial's university-wide Research Week

Undergraduate students, graduate students, and pharmacy residents involved in research activities in the last academic year are invited to take part in poster competitions and mini-presentations. Judging panels will evaluate all posters and winners may be selected for one of several awards.

Come cheer on your peers and colleagues!
