The West Virginia University School of Pharmacy has approximately 10 times more funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) today than it did just six years ago. This recently released information is from a research ranking report by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP).
Five new faculty members have been selected by the Office of the Provost following a rigorous application process as the recipients of the 2019-2020 Innovation, Design and Entrepreneurship Academy Faculty Fellowship, a comprehensive initiative to bolster WVU’s culture of entrepreneurship and innovation.
We want to know about the handmade art and crafts that WVU health professionals are making! Any part- or full-time Health Sciences staff, faculty or students may submit ready-to-display craftwork of any media or theme for this exhibition. All levels will be considered.
