20th Annual Graduate Student Symposium
Friday October 25th, 2013
Marriott Northwest, San Antonio,TX


Each fall, the graduate students in the Department of Pharmacology organize a symposium, which includes two poster sessions, several slide presentations, lunch, and a keynote address. This year's Symposium is being held at the Marriott Northwest, 3233 NW Loop 410 (410 and I10 interchange-use the frontage road for access). The event is being organized by Pharmacology graduate students Michael Eskander, Julianne Jett (Chair) and Andrew Robles.

During the two poster sessions, the research of dozens of students, postdocs, and faculty is highlighted. This year's speakers for the Student Presentations are Alumnus Theodore (Ted) Price, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Pharmacology at the University of Arizona and Graduate Student Jennifer Donegan. The Graduate Student Symposium is traditionally brought to a close by the Arthur Briggs Lecturer, who this year is P. Jeffrey Conn, Ph.D., Lee E. Limbird Professor of Pharmacology and founding Director of the Program in Translational Neuropharmacology and the Vanderbilt Center for Neuroscience Drug Discovery at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. His Graduate Student Symposium address is titled 'Role of Academic institutions in drug discovery and development' (Talk Synopsis).
