As a proud 1984 University at Buffalo pharmaceutics alumnus, I am thrilled to be back home as the new dean of the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SPPS). Over the last few months, I have had the opportunity to meet with many from the SPPS community and my great enthusiasm for UB and its future has only increased with each meeting. I am excited to help guide this next chapter in the school’s history to ensure even greater success for our exceptional student leaders, innovative educational programs and outstanding research and scientific discovery.
As we begin this next stage of our journey, we will continue to maximize the impact of our collective work, relying on the strength of our proud past to position us for even greater future success on the national and global stage.
I would like to thank everyone for their warm welcome. It is an honor and a privilege to serve in my role as dean and I look forward to meeting many more of you and hearing from you, what makes our school such a special place.
