ETSU hosts the Appalachian Student Research Forum (ASRF) every Spring. GCOP students performing either basic or clinical research contribute poster or oral presentations based on their research findings at the ASRF. In 2017, three presentations by GCOP students were given awards for quality. Alexis Hall, a high school student working with Dr. Brooks Pond, was awarded 2nd place in the undergraduate Natural Sciences Group. Caden Cox, a Pharm.D. student working with Dr. Victoria Palau, won 1st place for his poster on “The Effects of Furanoxapalamine on Colon Cancer Cells as a Novel Treatment Option”. Amanda Linna, a Pharm.D. student working with Dr. Charles Collins, won 1st place for her work on “A HPLC Analysis Technique of Coenzyme Q10”. Amanda, Dr. Collins, and Dean Byrd are shown below.
The GCOP consistently presents nearly 25 posters at each year’s ASRF, indicative of the thriving Concentration in Pharmacy Research program. This is a unique aspect of the training of Pharm.D. students that helps to increase their competitive rankings for residencies and fellowships.
