Louis C. Littlefield Celebrating Pharmacy Research Excellence Day


8th annual research day set for April 17

Systematic inquiry takes center focus on April 17 as The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy observes its eighth annual Celebrating Pharmacy Research Excellence Day. All events scheduled in conjunction with the day are free and open to the public.  For the first time in the history of the event, presentations from the day will be open to a global audience via a live-chat function on the web.

The distinguished faculty lecture kicks off the day with a presentation at 11 a.m. in PHR 3.106.  Dr. Marv Shepherd, a professor of health outcomes and pharmacy practice and director of the college’s Center for Pharmacoeconomic Studies, will discuss "Bitter Pills: Growing Threat of Counterfeit Drugs."

Dr. David Rogers, First Tennessee Endowed Chair of Excellence in Clinical Pharmacy at the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy, will present the external keynote scientific lecture.  His presentation, "Overcoming Limitations of Antifungal Drug Therapy - From Clinical Pharmacy to Molecular Mycology," begins at 12:15 p.m. also in PHR 3.106.

The event showcases the research contributions of the college's professional degree students, graduate students and post-doctoral residents and fellows. One student from each of the three research categories, will be cited for excellence and will be invited to make brief oral summaries of his/her work in PHR 3.106 following Dr. Rogers' address.

Research initiatives by all participating students will be featured at an afternoon poster showcase. Oral summaries by three abstract award winners will be featured in the poster display session to be located in a tent in the courtyard between Anna Hiss Gymnasium and the Molecular Biology Building. 

Research day is named in honor of Dr. Louis C. Littlefield, a longtime associate dean and faculty member within the College of Pharmacy and an instrumental faculty member in the establishment of the college's program at the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio.

This year, for the first time, the speaker presentations for the day will be opened up to a global audience via this website. The global audience will be invited to participate with the live audience by submitting questions for the speakers through a live-chat function.

On or around April 10th, this page will include a test site that will allow audiences to verify that their computer setup is ready for the event. Then, on the day of the event, visitors can return to this page to watch and participate in the event.
