A Message from Our Dean

With fond memories of graduation, and sad goodbyes mixed with anticipation of a new school year beginning in ten weeks, the College of Pharmacy community has reached another summer. Graduation was a wonderful celebration of the successes of the 90 talented student pharmacists, two masters and three Ph.D. candidates that comprise the Class of 2007. This graduating class was particularly special to me in that it was the first class that was admitted under our new admissions criteria and the first class to experience our White Coat ceremony. Graduation convocation in the Pit was highlighted by our keynote speakers, Dr. Phil Eaton, Executive Vice President Emeritus of the UNM Health Sciences Center and our 2007 Distinguished Alumnus, Dennis Burns ('70), La Luz, New Mexico. Both made inspiring presentations to our graduates. Dr. Eaton spoke on the wonderful progress that pharmacists have made in combating communicable diseases over the past 90 years and he again delighted our Class of 2007 with his reflections on his White Coat speech to them in August 2003. We are busy recruiting new faculty, preparing for the second year of our new curriculum and finalizing plans for our new cooperative pharmacy program with New Mexico State University. Our plan is to enroll a pilot group of 2-4 students for the UNM/NMSU Cooperative Pharmacy program. These first year students at NMSU will begin working on their prerequisites this Fall. A full complement of 10 students will be recruited for the program beginning in August 2008. Our first year class entering in August 2007 will be the largest and most ethnically and geographically diverse group ever admitted to our College. Approximately fifty-five percent of our entering student pharmacists are female, 91 percent are New Mexico residents. Of our 88 entering students, 35 percent are Hispanic, 9 percent Native American, 2 percent are African American, 17 percent Asian American and 37 percent Caucasian. Our College remains the most ethnically diverse College of Pharmacy in the United States! I am indebted to our many faculty members, staff, alumni and preceptors who played a significant role in our graduation ceremonies, admissions processes and advisory committees during the 2006-07 academic year. You are the ones who are making a difference in the lives of our students and our profession!

April 19, 2007

Presentation: "Investigating Stroke Treatment - from Bedside to Bench and Back"

Dr. Susan Fagan has been a Professor of Pharmacy at the University of Georgia, and adjunct Professor of Neurology at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, Georgia since 1999. Prior to her position there, she spent 13 years on the faculty of Wayne State University and Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan where she rose to rank of professor. She received her BSc in Pharmacy from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from SUNY at Buffalo. She completed a 2-year fellowship in Neuropharmacology at the Dent Neurologic Institute in Buffalo, NY after which she joined the faculty at Wayne State University. She is currently a Fellow of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy and the American Heart Association Stroke Council and a board-certified pharmacotherapy specialist. She is recognized nationally and internationally for her stroke research and sits on the Prevention Advisory Board of the National Stroke Association and the Leadership Committee of the American Heart Association Stroke Council. Dr. Fagan's research program is focused on the identification and development of new therapeutic strategies for acute ischemic stroke. Currently, her work focuses on vascular protection after acute stroke as an attempt to improve functional recovery. Using both experimental and clinical approaches, Dr. Fagan's laboratory aims to improve the way in which stroke patients are treated.

Dr. Colin Jefcoate has been selected as the recipient of the COP 2007 Volunteer Graduate Faculty Award. Colin R. Jefcoate, Ph.D. is a Professor in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine. For the past 10 years, Dr. Jefcoate has visited the UNM College of Pharmacy on an almost annual basis to present research seminars (Pharm 593), collaborate with COP faculty on various research projects, and teach COP graduate students (Pharm 580, Pharm 581 and Pharm 594). Dr. Jefcoate has longstanding scientific interactions and collaborations with Dr. Marcus, Dr. Burchiel, Dr. Walker, Dr. Thompson and Dr. Zheng, and is developing new interactions with Drs. Liu, Hudson and Feng. Dr. Jefcoate again visited UNM COP April 21-25, 2007 to present two lectures on the molecular mechanisms of carcinogenesis to the Toxicology graduate students (Pharm 581) and also an outstanding research seminar on the emerging unexpected role of Cytochrome P450 1B1 in obesity (Pharm 593). Thus, Dr. Jefcoate has been tremendously supportive of the instructional and research programs here at the UNM COP over the past 10 years and therefore is highly deserving of his award as volunteer faculty of the year. Dr. Jefcoate was awarded his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Oxford University in 1966 and is an internationally recognized research scientist in the field of cytochromes P450 and he has published over 150 peer reviewed papers in this field. His current research program focuses on a variety of signaling mechanisms involving P450 cytochromes. The signaling pathways currently under investigation in Dr. Jefcoate's laboratory regulate activity at nuclear receptors regulated by three types of ligand/ activator: cholesterol and/or steroid hormones; fatty acids and their metabolites; and via the Ah receptor/PCB's and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.

MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENTS TOUR

On April 19, 2007 representatives from the UNM Colleges of Pharmacy and Nursing, and the School of Medicine hosted a tour for 33 students from Camino Real Middle School of Las Cruces, NM. The students, who are part of a special health careers' academy at Camino Real, participated in a variety of activities on the tour. After receiving brief introductions about the colleges, the students experienced a "flavor" of the type of work and training needed for the respective health professions for which our Colleges and Schools prepare their students. The College of Nursing hosted a tour of the Nursing Simulation Lab and had the students interact with a physical assessment-training mannequin that coughs, makes vomiting sounds (which entertained the students to no end), and has a measurable pulse. The College of Pharmacy introduced the students to basic compounding by making colored and flavored lip balm. Finally, the School of Medicine had students, who were divided into groups and were guided by medical students, perform dissections on fetal pigs. Jacki McCurley and Ray Gomez, the Camino Real teachers in attendance, were impressed with the tour and said the students loved the experience! Our guests extend their sincerest thanks to all who participated in the event, and especially extend their gratitude to the Integrated Environmental Health Middle School Project (IEHMSP) for organizing the event. Providing these types of hands-on, positive experiences will certainly leave an indelible impression on the students and will hopefully encourage them to attend the University of New Mexico to become a health practitioner. Many thanks are extended to the following people for their time and efforts: College of Pharmacy: Megan Thompson, IEHMSP Staff - Linda Beltran, Tara Peterson, Stefani Hines, Craig Marcus (PI), and two pharmacy students Shanelle Scales and Jamie Dawson. College of Nursing: Leah Hardesty and Susan Fox School of Medicine: Peter Couse, Rosemary Romero, Jessica Sanchez, Susan Gafner, and the medical students Richard Vestal, Melissa Saavedra, Victoria Kelly, Lawanda Jim, Sara Oman, Trisstin Maroney, Hussein Kassam, and Jorge Ganem.
