On Dec. 12, 2022, 40 students from Salem High School visited the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. This provided the opportunity to introduce the students to the various aspects of pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences. Highlights included:
- Overview of drug delivery systems and formulation development processes such as pharmaceutical tablet dosage formulation.
- Introduction to molecular biology techniques and application in neurodegenerative disease and aging research.
- Introduction to neuroanatomy of the brain.
The department strongly believes the interaction with Salem High School students was a great success in presenting the multi-faceted aspects of pharmaceutical research which could be an impetus for them to consider further opportunities and education at NEOMED.
