About the College of Pharmacy Research Day

The College of Pharmacy Research Day is an annual forum to highlight research projects of final-year undergraduate and post graduate students.

The primary goals of the Research Day are to showcase the various types of research in the College of Pharmacy, share our mutual interests, and develop intra- and interdepartmental collaborations.

The conception of this Research Day was created in year 2007 with the aim of preparing Pharmacy students for presenting their studies at scientific conferences. Thereafter, this effort has continued in which it became mandatory for all final-year students in the College of Pharmacy to participate in this Research Day by presenting their work.

Research Day provides a great opportunity to learn about diverse research ideas being conducted within the College of Pharmacy.

Message from the Dean

We are celebrating at the college of pharmacy another nice memorable re-search day in its 12 edition. Graduation project course in our Pharm D curric-ulum program has become by now a defining step in every alumni at our col-lege and an event that we all proud of and seek its advancement year over year. We believe in scientific research in all its forms, types, or shapes that it is a key differentiator not only for our outstanding undergraduate students but also for our distinguished faculty members and researchers. Moreover, we believe that our students should be exposed to all levels of research: labora-tory, field trips, surveys and all other studies where this will empower them with the needed 21 century skills anchored by our 2030 national vision fo-cused on the research, development and innovation ecosystem. I express my deep gratitude to all supervisory committee members, faculty members and researchers who are sparing their precious time to evaluate, assess, and support the success of this remarkable event. I hope this informative and sci-entifically rich booklet of a great value to you to get more insights about COPRD.

Lastly, I invite you all to celebrate with us this research festival with its care-fully and thoughtfully designed program.

Dean and Professor of Pharmaceutical Biotechnology

Message from the COPRD12 Head

On behalf of the twelfth College of Pharmacy Research Day (COPRD12) Advisory Committee, it is my great pleasure and honor to welcome you to our 12th COPRD Research Day.

After long and tiresome nights, a page has been turned by the grace of God, his success, and his care, and here we are to celebrate today, the twelfth anniversary of the COPRD. 

COPRD12 focuses on the Pharmacy graduation research, postgraduate research, and other Pharmacy-related disciplines from KSU and other institutions, as well as a broad range of issues and challenges, weaving them through our creative students, the keynote speaker, special moderators, and potential judges.

We received 143 submissions, 18 of which were selected for regular oral presentation, and 125 for poster presentations.

With this exciting program, COPRD12 hopes to bring together a rich diversity of research ideas spearheaded by our talented and very competent faculty members and collaboratively share ideas and new perspectives with researchers from other institutions.

The popularity of COPRD as the premier forum for students has started to grow exponentially, and it aims to become a prominent forum where Pharmacy students, researchers, and practitioners openly exchange ideas and report progress in the exciting areas of Pharmaceutical sciences.

The credit for this distinction goes to the persistence of the existing team, the distinguished committees, the wonderful students, and the support of our distinguished college which was led by our Dean, Professor Amer Mayuf Alenazi Without his support, encouragement, and motivation, we would not have been able to excel and develop. We wish you success and excellence in your new appointment.

I would also like to express my gratitude and appreciation to all those that have dedicated their time, energy, and ideas to assist in organizing this event, including all the members of the Organizing Committee, moderators, judges, project supervisors, and our distinguished keynote speaker, Professor Hisham Aljadhey. It is through the concerted collective efforts of these individuals that we can bring you a great event today.

We hope that the day’s event will be an enjoyable and fulfilling experience for all participants and attendees.
