Pharmaceutical Sciences Symposium
Date: May 3, 2016
Cost: Free
Venue: Kapoor Hall, Buffalo NY
Organizer: Pharmaceutical Sciences GSA

The “12th Annual Pharmaceutical Sciences Distinguished Alumni Symposium” is an information exchange exercise wherein students will discuss their research with a prominent UB Pharmaceutical Sciences alumnus, who will also present a keynote speech. This year we have chosen to recognized Dr. Brian Booth as our distinguished alumni of 2016. Dr. Booth was a post-doctoral fellow in Dr. Ho-Leung Fung’s lab and is currently deputy director at the US Food and Drug Administration, FDA (Division of Clinical Pharmacology V FDA\OTS\OCP) in Washington D.C. It is with great honor and privilege to invite Dr. Booth back to meet with the students and department to share his experiences and success from the FDA. Current students will have the opportunity to meet individually and in groups with Dr. Booth to discuss research, network, and learn more about opportunities in FDA. Also, a formal Professional Development luncheon will be hosted by Dr. Booth where graduate students will have the opportunity to develop alumni relationships and to inquire about his experiences in FDA. The keynote speech will be of interest to graduate students from a variety of discipline including, but not limited to, Biological Sciences, Pharmacy, RPCI, Pharmacology/Toxicology, Chemistry, and Chemical Engineering. We firmly believe that affording the graduate students the opportunity to meet and interact with a distinguished scholar will enhance their graduate student experience and inspire them to strive for similar success.

Event Sponsors: Pharmaceutical Sciences GSA, UB-AAPS Student Chapter, UB Pharmaceutical Science Department, Chemical and Biological Engineering GSA, Pharmacology and Toxicology GSA and UB GSA.
