The School hosted the Eighth Meeting of the Globalization of Pharmaceutics Education Network on November 10 to 12, 2010. GPEN, Inc., which was founded in 1996 to give graduate students and postdoctoral fellows needed increased exposure to science and culture at an international level, sponsors biannual meetings designed to foster and facilitate international scientific exchange in the pharmaceutical sciences.
The keynote speaker for the 2010 meeting was Oliver Smithies, DPhil, co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Prize in Physiology and medicine for the discovery of the principles of introducing specific gene modifications in mice by the use of embryonic stem cells. The meeting included two days of scientific presentations by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from the approximately forty-five universities that are GPEN members, as well as short courses taught by faculty and industry experts from around the world.
