FAMU Pharmacy Program Receives Top Recognition for Innovative Medical Research

Faculty in the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU) College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (COPPS) are making a national impact in medical research. The prestigious Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research has listed the college as the No. 12 pharmacy program in the nation for generating the most research funding, and the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) lists the college as the largest recipient of National Institutes of Health (NIH) research grants among all Florida pharmacy programs, as well as among those at the University of Georgia, Auburn and Samford.

These accomplishments have helped to contribute to the University’s recent elevation by the Carnegie Classification of Institutes of Higher Education System to an R-2 or “high research activity” institution. This new classification ranks FAMU on the same research level, with only half the faculty, as institutions such as Auburn University and Old Dominion University.

“I am extremely proud of our faculty, administration, graduate students, and our research office assistants as we do our part to keep FAMU in its rightful place as a national leader in medical research and in training the next generation of pharmaceutical scientists and pharmacy professionals,” said COPPS Dean Michael D. Thompson, Pharm.D.

A Feeder Success Story

My research interests focus on the economic impact of the influence of mobile and social media technologies on the consumption behavior of underrepresented populations.Morgan M. Bryant (FAMU/SBI c/o 2002) is a 2nd year Doctoral Student & Graduate Assistant in Consumer Economics,at the University of Georgia, Department of Financial Planning, Housing Policy & Consumer Economics

In addition to the Graduate Feeder's Program, I was also named 1 of 8 Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) Doctoral Scholars at UGA. I am allowed to utilize both funding sources which provides full funding for me for up to five years, money to attend conferences to present my research and participation in an annual invitation-only academic conference for underrepresented minorities in academia. Receiving both Graduate Feeder's and SREB funding made me the highest funded doctoral student in the 10 year history of our program.

 In my first year in the program, I won a departmental contest for recruiting proposals. Starting this fall we will focus graduate student recruiting efforts on the five HBCUs (FAMU, Spelman, Morehouse, Albany State, Fort Valley State) that are eligible for UGA's Graduate Feeder funding.

Additionally, our department has launched a new undergraduate and graduate concentration, Consumer Policy Analytics. As a former consumer analytics professional, I was tapped to assist in curriculum development. As a graduate assistant in the department for my first year, I worked with professor Dr. Patyrk Babiarz, to develop a course proposal, syllabus, curriculum, and content. That course, Applied Consumer Policy Analytics, will be taught beginning Fall 2016.
