Thompson Awarded Pfizer Pre–Doctoral Fellowship

Margaret Thomson, PharmD, student in the dual degree PharmD/PhD program, has been awarded the Pfizer Pre–Doctoral Fellowship for Pharmaceutical Sciences by the American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education for the third consecutive year. Dr. Thomson's research is focusing on the disposition of drugs in the pediatric population. Specifically, her research investigates the development of drug transporters and the role age may play in this process. Currently there is little information regarding the development of drug transport processes. With this information clinicians will be better able to predict which drugs may be safely be given to children at various ages. AFPE is the nation's oldest and largest pharmacy foundation and supports pharmaceutical sciences education at U.S. schools and colleges of pharmacy through a variety of grant and fellowship programs.
