Undergraduate and graduate research is presented by students, awards and recognitions are given to those who excel in their field, and colleagues and alumni from across the industry gather at special events to celebrate and network. This year, Research Day will not only celebrate excellence in research, but also the retirement of Dr. Fakhreddin "Mo" Jamali, who will be honoured at the Gala Dinner, as well as a social Pub Night. Since his arrival at the Faculty in 1981, Dr. Jamali has shown incredible dedication to both his career and industry, bettering the lives of others through his research, advocacy, and teaching. After 37 years of service to the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Alberta, Dr. Jamali and his work will further be honoured by raising funds to create a graduate fellowship in his name. All friends, family, and colleagues of Dr. Jamali are invited to join the faculty in honouring his contributions and legacy by making a donation to the Dr. Mo Jamali Graduate Fellowship in Pharmaceutical Sciences.
