Two students from the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy were awarded the Presidential Trainee Award from the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics.

Jesse Martin and Patrick Hanafin were among the 17 recipients of the award, which recognizes the top scoring abstracts submitted by clinical pharmacologists in training.

Martin also received the ASCPT Jason Morrow Trainee Award for the second-highest scoring trainee abstract submitted. The award includes a $1,000 prize.

Both students will be recognized and receive their awards at the ASCPT Annual Meeting in March in Washington, DC.

Hanafin is a first-year Ph.D. student in the Division of Pharmacotherapy and Experimental Therapeutics. His faculty mentor is Gauri Rao, Pharm.D., M.S.

The American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics is the largest scientific and professional organization serving the disciplines of clinical pharmacology and translational medicine. ASCPT focuses on improving the understanding and use of existing drug therapies and developing safer and more effective treatments for the future.
