Bzowyckyj has been selected by the American Pharmacists Association to receive its Distinguished Achievement Award in Service.
It is my pleasure to share that our Research Fellow, Mehrdad Alavi (PharmD '18, MS '18), received an ASPET Mentoring Network award. Every year, the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET) grants the ASPET Mentoring Network award to a select number of postdoctoral scientists/trainees to join the ASPET Mentoring Network program.
One way the School of Pharmacy aims to build interest in its programs is to invite high school students to the Hillsboro Campus for a day. Recently, a science class from Portland's Cleveland High School paid a visit.
The charity Dr. Peter Agbo co-founded, in partnership with Nissis Vessels Foundation and Mecca USA, will deliver medical care and services to people traumatized by war, as well as those who lack basic care. His passion for service has been an inspiration to his faculty and classmates back at Pacific, which is why the Pacific University Alumni Association is honoring him with the 2018 Emerging Leader Award.
