2012 June eNotes

 

University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences
June 2012
Dean's e-Notes
Welcome to our June eNotes.

I am pleased to announce that we have begun our move to John and Editha Kapoor Hall. About half of our faculty and staff are now in Kapoor Hall, with the remainder transitioning by the end of June. After many years of planning, it is my sincere pleasure to tell you that Kapoor Hall truly is the best home the UB School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences could have. The impressive design gives our school a modern "look-to-the-future" feel, while integrating our rich history. The many classrooms, lecture halls and student spaces will have all the "finishing touches" in place in time for the start of classes in August.

Our June eNotes is always a very rich edition, as it showcases our many end-of-the-year activities, including commencement. I hope you enjoy the following articles showcasing the outstanding accomplishments of our students, faculty and staff. Our next eNotes will come to you in July, when I will be proud to report that our entire SoPPS family will be in Kapoor Hall.

Please stay in touch. Send updates on your personal and professional accomplishments by email to phm-alumni@buffalo.edu.

With warm regards,
Wayne K. Anderson, PhD, professor and dean

In Memoriam, Thomas Bardos 1915-2012
In Memoriam, Thomas Bardos 1915-2012
In Memoriam, Thomas Bardos 1915-2012
Thomas J. Bardos, emeritus professor of medicinal chemistry at the school who was involved in cancer chemotherapy research for more than 50 years, died on May 15. Dr. Bardos was a committed scientist, a pioneer and innovator in his field, and a true educator of scientists to help insure the continued progress of cancer research.

During his tenure at UB, he directed the thesis research of 32 PhD candidates and the research projects of 38 postdoctoral associates. In 1995, he initiated and partially sponsored an annual national awards program with the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) for the selection of 10 advanced, undergraduate students to encourage their interest and training in cancer research. This successful program more recently was renamed the AACR-Thomas J. Bardos Science Education Awards. He also established an award here in SoPPS in memory of former dean Daniel H. Murray to recognize a graduating PharmD student involved in research.

Dr. Bardos retired from the university in 1993.

He is survived by his wife of 10 years, Maria; his brother; sister-in-law; and two nieces. A memorial service will take place at University Presbyterian Church of Buffalo at a date to be announced later.

Members of the school were deeply saddened to learn of Dr. Bardos' passing and will remember him fondly.

AACP Recognizes Faculty and Alumni for Contributions to Research and Education
The school is proud to announce the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy has awarded UB faculty member Gene Morse, '80 & '83, professor of pharmacy practice and associate director of the core research group in translational pharmocology at UB's New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences, the prestigious Volwiler Research Achievement Award. The school is very proud to have Gene's pioneering, lifelong, work in HIV/AIDS recognized. This is only the second time the Volwiler award has been given to a clinical scientist.

The school also is proud to announce that alumna Jean Nappi, '73, is the recipient of the Robert K. Chalmers Distinguished Pharmacy Educator Award. Jean was recognized by AACP for her role in establishing PharmD programs at many institutions across the country, as well as her leadership in postgraduate education and the creation of specialty residencies.

Both Drs. Morse and Nappi will be recognized on July 17 during the 2012 AACP Annual Meeting. We hope many of you attending the meeting will have the opportunity to attend the awards ceremony.

David Chu Inaugural Lecture
David Chu Inaugural Lecture
Christopher A. Lipinski, an internationally renowned scientist in the field of drug discovery, presented the University at Buffalo School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences' inaugural David Chu Lecture on April 10.

The lecture honors David C.K. Chu, Distinguished Research Professor Emeritus in the Department of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences, College of Pharmacy, University of Georgia, who received a PhD in medicinal chemistry in 1975 from the UB School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

A PhD in physical organic chemistry, Lipinski worked at Pfizer for more than 20 years, contributing to the discovery of numerous drug candidates. His primary interests are in the design of bioisosteres, drug physical chemical properties and quantitative structure activity relationships.

Chu and his wife, Jane, who received her MS in medicinal chemistry from the UB pharmacy school, established the David Chu Lectureship in 2011 to give back to their alma mater. It is one of several initiatives the couple and their daughters, Susan and Jackie, hope to fund through the recently created Chu Family Foundation.

ACPE/NABP Launches CPE Monitor
The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) recently announced a new electronic-tracking service for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians called CPE Monitor. The purpose of CPE Monitor is to authenticate and store data for completed CPE units received by pharmacists and pharmacy technicians from ACPE-accredited providers. The UB Office of Continuing Pharmacy Education has created and transitioned databases and IT systems in compliance with this new requirement, and continues to work with program participants to ensure a smooth transition.

Additional information on this collaborative service, including a link to the recently launched CE program online registration tool, can be found on the new SoPPS Continuing Pharmacy Education webpage at www.pharmacy.buffalo.edu/ce.
