College of Pharmacy Research Day


Research Day is an annual College-wide event that brings together our trainees, alumni, faculty members, and staff as well as industry and academic colleagues from the Chicago area.


Organized in November, the event showcases the research of our students and postdoctoral trainees, with nearly 100 posters presented.  We invite exciting keynote speakers whose cutting edge research appeals to campus-wide audiences.  The day concludes with award ceremonies and reception.  We recognize our outstanding students, faculty members, and alumni as well as top poster presenters.

SAVE THE DATE: The 12th Annual Research Day will be November 12, 2021.

The UIC College of Pharmacy recognizes the significant challenges that COVID-19 has placed on the clinical, scientific, and educational communities. In accordance with state and university guidance, we are currently planning on Research Day being a virtual event in 2021. Poster sessions, award ceremonies, and the keynote lecture will still be presented live/in real time; however, they will be held online to maintain social distancing and minimize risk to our community.

Setting aside the challenges of things being virtual…I am, again, overall impressed with the research work thoughtfully conceived and then carried out there at UIC COP. The students, both grad and PharmD, are receiving a measurably better education now than in the past, because of your efforts.  You should all go home at night, virtually!, knowing that you are training and educating future leaders in pharmacy and the health care professions.
