Each year ACPHS hosts a "Research Forum" where faculty members from each department and on both campuses
present overviews of their research activities and discuss current projects. The
2013 Research Forum's oral sessions and poster sessions offer a useful guide to the variety of research currently taking place at the College and the faculty members who are leading those efforts.
Work Side-by-Side with Faculty
Opportunities exist for students within each of College's academic
programs to work side-by-side with faculty on groundbreaking
research. These “hands on” research experiences are not typically
afforded to undergraduates at most schools and are part of what
distinguishes ACPHS from other colleges and universities.
Regardless of whether you are interested in a research-based career,
the critical thinking skills honed in a laboratory are ones which
will offer benefits for a lifetime
– no matter which career path
Resources and Specialities
Students interested in research at ACPHS have an array of mentors
and resources at their disposal, including the College’s
Research Institute (PRI). Led by Shaker A. Mousa, Ph.D., a
former Research Fellow at DuPont Pharmaceuticals who holds more than
220 U.S. and international patents, PRI is a center for drug
discovery and development. The PRI staff is comprised of experts in fields that include nanotechnology, medicinal chemistry, molecular
biology, and cell biology.
ACPHS is also home to groups of faculty with specialties in
infectious disease, sepsis,
health outcomes research, and nephrology (the study of the
function and diseases of the kidney). The five nephrology-trained
clinical pharmacy scientists at the College represent the largest
group of academic-based faculty in the country.
