Pharmaceutical Sciences Distinguished Alumni Symposium

November 8, 2023 - November 9, 2023

The Pharmaceutical Sciences Distinguished Alumni Symposium is an annual tradition within the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences held as an all-day event in which graduate students have the opportunity to meet with a prominent alumna/alumnus from the Pharmaceutical Sciences department. This year, we have invited Dr. Doahn (Donny) Tran as our distinguished alumnus. Dr. Tran currently serves as Deputy Director of the Division of Cardiometabolic and Endocrine Pharmacology at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and he has previousy held several other leadership positions within the FDA during his time there including Deputy Director for the Division of Bone, Reproductive and Urologic Products and the Division of Dermatology and Dental Products. Dr. Tran has several decades of experience to share amongst current pharmaceutical sciences graduate students, and we are excited to hear of his fruitful career following his graduate education at UB. During the symposium, graduate students will have the opportunity to engage in a career development lunch session with Dr. Tran and fellow student leaders within the department. Further, students will be able to reserve a one-on-one meeting with Dr. Tran to further discuss his research and career, expand their career network, and learn about opportunities available to pharmaceutical science graduates within the pharmaceutical regulatory area. The day-long event will conclude with a keynote speech from Dr. Tran delivered to the university. This speech will be of great interest not only to those wihtin the pharmaceutical sciences, but also across several disciplines including Biological Sciences, Pharmacy, Pharmacology and Toxicology, Chemistry, Public Health, and Chemical Engineering, among others. We firmly believe that providing graduate students with the opportunity to meet with distinguished UB alumni will enhance their graduate student experience and inspire them to strive for similar success.
