Department of Clinical Pharmacy now named Department of Clinical Pharmacy and Translational Science

The Department of Clinical Pharmacy has changed its name to the Department of Clinical Pharmacy and Translational Science. The name change was implemented to a more contemporary name consistent with other colleges of pharmacy and emphasize the growth of the research within the department.
“Clinical Pharmacy adequately describes the activities of our education practitioner faculty members, but not our health outcomes and policy faculty members, nor our microbial pathogenesis investigators,” Dr. Richard Helms, PharmD, FPPAG, FASPEN, Professor and Chair of the Department of Clinical Pharmacy and Translational Science said. “We were seeking a more inclusive title.  Translational Science has moved from concept to a functioning arm in health sciences, one of scope and importance.”
