Research and Scholarly Activities Committee
The Research and Scholarly Activity Committee is the faculty committee charged with strengthening the University’s research program and leadership in pharmacy practice, basic and pharmaceutical sciences, liberal arts and administrative sciences.
Formed in 2009, the committee strives to maintain an environment that values and promotes scholarly and research activity. Committee members review faculty research proposals, allocate funding and work to disseminate research results. Its mission includes supporting student research skills and encouraging students to ask questions — and seek answers — about vital pharmacy and health issues.
Specifically, the committee sponsors the following events to share health care ideas and information:
- Faculty Research Seminars: faculty from each academic division give presentations throughout the academic year.
- Annual Student Research Symposium: organized and financed by the committee and the Gateway College of Clinical Pharmacy chapter of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy at University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis, the symposium features posters and presentations showcasing a wide array of student research interests.
