Purdue IPPH Students attend the 2018 Pharmaceutics Graduate Student Meeting
IPPH Graduate Students attend the 2018 Pharmaceutics Graduate Student Meeting (PGSRM)!
Thirteen Purdue IPPH students traveled to the University of Minnesota in June to attend the 50th Annual Pharmaceutics Graduate Student Meeting. This annual meeting provides a "platform for pharmaceutics graduate students to present their research and participate in critical discussions on current, cutting-edge research in the field, all while fostering life-long and meaningful connections with fellow graduate students".
The theme of this year's meeting was "Bridging Therapeutics and Technology". According to organizers, "As pharmaceutical research progresses, the disciplines of chemistry, biology and technology become closely intertwined. As graduate students, we must adapt to the current interdisciplinary nature of pharmaceutical science and learn to bring the space between fields." The keynote speakers addressing this topic were Dr. Clay Siegall (Seattle Genetics) and Dr. Samir Mitragotri (Harvard University). Other speakers included Dr. Jane Kenny (Genentech), Dr. Lynne Taylor (Purdue IPPH!) and Dr. Paul Lockman (West Virginia University).
Several IPPH students were honored with awards at the 2018 PGSRM meeting. Congratulations to Clara Correa-Soto and Lia Bersin who won poster awards and S. Andrew Yuk who won a podia award at this meeting!
