June 17, 2011: The 38th Annual Pharmacology Colloquium at UT and
the 2nd Annual CVMD Research Forum

The 38th Annual Pharmacology Research Colloquium was hosted this year by the UT College of Medicine Dept. of Physiology and was combined with the department's 2nd Annual Student Research Forum.  This Pharmacology Colloquium brings together graduate students and faculty from the “pharmacology” departments of the Michigan State University, the University of Michigan, Wayne State University, and the University of Toledo, College of Medicine for a day long scientific program.  Each of the schools takes turns in hosting this annual event. The colloquium primarily provides a forum for doctoral students to present their research in both oral and poster presentations and an opportunity for all participants to exchange ideas.  These colloquia were initiated 38 years ago by Dr. Theodore M. Brody of Michigan State University and Dr. Benedict Lucchesi of the University of Michigan.  

The welcome address was delivered by Dr. Nader Abraham, Chair of the UT Dept. of Physiology and Pharmacology

The program included 13 oral presentations, including those by UT students Kristine Angevine, Jean-Yves Tano, Lance Stechschulte and Leah Wuescher, 50 poster presentations including 12 presented by UT students.  The keynote lecture was presented by John Hall, Ph.D. Arthur C. Guyton Professor and Chairman Dept. Physiology and Biophysics, University of Mississippi Medical Center, an Honorary Guest Lecture -the Vladimir Nigrovic Lectureship in Pharmacology and Anesthesiology was presented by Dr. Robert Gallo, Director of the Institute of Human Virology, at the University of Maryland School of Medicine.
