For Immediate Release

Members of the community are invited to learn more about research conducted at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy at the Inaugural DKICP Research Day, to be held at Prince Kuhio Plaza Saturday, March 17, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

The event will showcase research on health issues such as cancer and infectious diseases. Faculty members from the Departments of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Pharmacy Practice will be present to explain the potential benefits their research will bring, along with graduate students working on their Ph.D. degrees in pharmaceutical sciences and student pharmacists from the professional Pharm.D. program.

“While the researchers are constantly explaining this high-level data to their scientific peers throughout the world, they are re-configuring their presentations in order to discuss their findings to a wider audience,” said Ghee Tan, director of the Ph.D. program and organizer of the community outreach. “This exercise will bring them out of their labs and clinical sites and out to meet the people who might benefit from the research outcomes.”

Information booths to include Cancer Research, Rat Lungworm Disease, Drug Discovery for Cancer and Infectious Diseases, Hawaiian Traditional Medicine, Neuroscience, Nanomedicine, Interprofessional Education, Opioid-related Casualties, and Antimicrobial Stewardship.
