June 7, 2013: The 40th Annual Pharmacology Colloquium at Wayne State University

The 40th Annual Pharmacology Research Colloquium was hosted this year by Wayne State University Dept. of Pharmacology.  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 41 years ago by Dr. Theodore M. Brody of Michigan State University and Dr. Benedict Lucchesi of the University of Michigan.  

Welcome addresses were delivered by Dr. Bonnie Sloane, Chair of the WSU Dept. of Pharmacology and Dr. Valerie Parisi, Dean od the WSU Medical School

The program included 13 oral presentations, including those by UT students Resmi Pillai, Gauarav Mehta, Qiming Duan and Jian Wu, 40 poster presentations including 7 presented by UT students.  The keynote lecture was presented by John S. Lazo, Ph.D. current president of ASPET and Associate Dean for Basic Research at the University of Virginia.
