Students pursuing a career in pharmacy now have an accelerated path to complete both a bachelor’s degree and Doctor of Pharmacy degree in seven years through a new partnership agreement between Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) and Kent State University.
ADVISORY: Northeast Ohio Medical University College of Pharmacy and Kent State University to Sign Articulation Agreement
The Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) College of Pharmacy and Kent State University’s College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry will enter into an articulation agreement on Monday, Jan. 13, at 3 p.m. The signing will take place in the Urban Conference Room, located on the second floor of the Kent State University Library in Kent, Ohio.
This partnership will make it possible for students to obtain their undergraduate and Pharm. D. degrees in just seven years, rather than the typical eight years it takes to complete both.
A team of scientists from Kent State University and Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) has begun collaboration on the development of a macrophage targeted mesenchymal stem cell therapy for tissue regeneration and wound healing, a fast-growing research area and major medical challenge.
The $120,000 internally funded program, with equal contributions from both Kent State and NEOMED, will support a post-doctoral researcher for a period of two years and is part of Kent State’s new internal post-doctoral fellow seed program.
The Division of Research and Sponsored Programs would like to congratulate the recipients of the inaugural Internal Post-doctoral Seed Program. In this initial round, 12 proposals were selected which resulted in awards for the support of 14 post-doctoral associates for one year. In addition, each of these awards was augmented by the investigators' departments and/or colleges to provide a total of two years of post-doctoral support. Proposals were submitted by both individual research investigators and groups of investigators.
