VCU School of Pharmacy launched its 2017 Summer Research Pizza Lunch series July 7 with … what else? … a pizza social! As is tradition, Pharm.D. students — who applied and were accepted to conduct summer research projects – will present the results of their research throughout the month. Everyone is invited to attend the presentations and also to enjoy a slice or two.

Summer Research Fellowships are available to rising second- and third-year Pharm.D. students, who have the opportunity to experience hands-on research while being mentored by volunteer faculty. Each student receives a stipend provided by the School of Pharmacy Dean’s Office.

Each week’s presentation begins at noon in the Smith Building, Room 103.
