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.
To coordinate coursework with research is not an easy task. Yet, KSU Pharmacy students are dedicated to manage their time effectively and actively participate in research activities. In our PharmD curriculum, graduation research project is mandatory to final-year students. In this course, our students undergo structured and supervised training on multiple techniques relevant to their areas of interest, where they gain academic and critical skills along with lab and field experiences. Research quality is ever evolving during the years! This indicated the level of trust that our faculty members have in their trainees. Such a parameter reflects the mentorship skills of our staff as well as the professionalism level of our students. At the end of each academic year, students participate their research through poster and oral presentations in the Annual College of Pharmacy research Day, which is in its 11th versions today in 2022. And it is not uncommon to see some of the presented research accepted for presentation or winning awards at national, regional, or international conferences, or ending up published in peer-reviewed journal. The unambiguous collective and collaborative effort of students and faculties makes me thankful and proud to be part of this event!
