During the summer we completed a number of projects that continue to enhance the experience of our students. A new complex was unveiled as we opened the first phase of the George and Leona Lewis Library and the Center for Teaching and Learning Effectiveness. Much needed small group spaces for collective work as well as individual spaces for quiet study are now available. Additional instructional and study space was added to the 84 Holland Building providing 10 large and two smaller classrooms as well as two large and eight private study rooms. Both a multi-purpose Health Sciences Lab and a Chemistry Lab were completed on the first floor of the Oâ€™Brien Building and our Robison Dining Hall has been completely renovated and now offers both expanded hours and choices in a more comfortable and inviting atmosphere. At our Vermont campus we have added an additional floor that now contains a new library, labs, office space and classrooms. As you will read in student Zach Paddockâ€™s personal account, these changes have been well received by students, faculty and staff.
Primarily driven by our fundraising efforts, our expansion will continue as we focus on the next phase of the library and the learning center project. Phase two of this project will include the addition of a second floor to the George and Leona Lewis Library which will further expand both group and individual study space for students. Tied to our student centered strategic plan initiatives, the project will also centralize our current student support services in one location. The new Center for Teaching and Learning Effectiveness will include and integrate the areas of academic advising, peer tutoring, registration, career development and writing, science assistance, and counseling centers. We thank you for your continued support in helping us realize our goal of becoming the premiere College for pharmacy and health sciences.

“The College will continue to place a priority on building relationships with international universities and organizations, with the goal of providing more opportunities for our students to study abroad, as well as bringing more international students to our campuses.” says ACPHS President James Gozzo.
Study Abroad Program Spans the Globe This summer, ACPHS students spanned the globe for academic opportunities. While studying in Asia and Europe, students gained valuable professional, educational and cultural exposure. For the first time, ACPHS students spent summers studying at Fudan University in Shanghai and the University of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Students also completed rotations at Maruzen Pharmaceuticals and Showa University in Japan and the University of Basel in Switzerland. In spite of language barriers and culture shock, students participated in what they described as life-changing experiences. “Aside from the lab experience, I was able to grow and learn in a more personal type of way,” said Jessica Phelps ‘11, who spent her summer in Spain. “I formed many relationships with other students who attended the university and who came from various other parts of the world. From them, I learned all different ways of life.” Several students thought their foreign experiences provided them with more global, academic, professional and social perspectives. Students also agreed that growth came with their time abroad. “The laboratory techniques and especially the patience I procured will help me to become a more focused scientist,” Joe Cross ’11 said, after spending his summer at the University of Basel. “I think more importantly that everything I did was a test to see if I could venture out on my own. It taught me a crucial component of
that: how to work independently without an instructor standing over my shoulder making every decision.” And this independence is exactly what is intended by study abroad programs at ACPHS, according to Arts and Sciences Professor Dudley Moon and Associate Professor Kevin Hickey, who started rotations in Japan and Switzerland respectively. “The rotation that I set up and coordinate has been part of my larger project to make ACPHS more global both for students studying here in Albany and Vermont and for students who set off to study abroad,” Hickey said. “The Base Rotation has expanded from five to 12 weeks, and students have found that working for three months with professors and graduate students in Switzerland is a rich and broadening experience.” Since 2001, Moon has coordinated fiveweek internships for ACPHS students at Maruzen’s research and development facilities. For more than five years, Hickey has overseen the Switzerland rotations, during which students work in hospital, retail and industrial pharmacies as well as in a heroin clinic. The College is working hard to develop more international opportunities for students. In fact, ACPHS is in the process of hiring a Director of Global Initiatives to help coordinate and advance the school’s international outreach efforts. “As the world becomes increasingly more global, students with international experiences
will be better positioned to work with and counsel people from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds,” says ACPHS President James Gozzo. “The College will continue to place a priority on building relationships with international universities and organizations, with the goal of providing more opportunities for our students to study abroad, as well as bringing more international students to our campuses.” More recently, Fudan University officials visited ACPHS and invited the students from the College to participate in an exchange. The Fudan rotation is now overseen by Pharmaceutical Sciences Assistant Professor Andy Zheng, who worked with Pharmaceutical Sciences Associate Professor Gail Goodman Snitkoff in launching the program. Zheng said the effort was motivated by an American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) initiative called Global Pharmacy Education, which encourages pharmacy colleges to offer international pharmacy exposure. And this exposure certainly isn’t limited to academic and professional realms. “I feel like it was the best decision of my life to go to China,” Jessica Wright ’11 said of her time at Fudan. “I was submerged into the culture by living there day-to-day instead of on a ‘touristy’ vacation. Seeing the history and famous points like the Great Wall is what brought me to China, but it’s the people and the inspiring culture that will bring me back.”
Executive Vice President and Chairman of the College’s Pharmaceutical Research Institute, is partnering with researchers from the University of Wisconsin to study the effectiveness of green tea extract, delivered via nanotechnology, in the prevention of prostate cancer. ACPHS will receive approximately $125,000 over the three years of the grant, which is sponsored by the Department of Defense’s Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program. Mousa has also published the second edition of his textbook titled, “Anticoagulants, Antiplatelets, and Thrombolytics.” The book highlights the latest developments in antithrombotics and provides experimental methods for the discovery of new and improved anticoagulants.

The National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS) has extended the accreditation of the College’s Clinical Laboratory Sciences program through 2014. The decision extends the program’s accreditation through April 30, 2014. Tom Lodise, Associate Pro-
Assistant Ptofessor, Darius Mason received a Norman S. Coplon Extramural Grant, for his study entitled, “Sustainability of Serum [250HD] Levels, Inflammatory Reduction, and Endothelial Dys¬function after Repletion with Ergocalciferol in CKD Stage 5D”, from Satellite Healthcare, a leading not-for-profit kidney dialysis service provider and a major sponsor of nephrology research. The grant of $150,000 is awarded over three years to promising earlycareer researchers dedicated to undertaking critical research in the area of kidney disease and its treatment.
fessor of Pharmacy Practice has received a $99,412.50 grant from Cubist Pharmaceuticals for a project titled, “Evaluating the Epidemiology and Outcomes of Patients with MRSA Bloodstream Infections that Express Heteroresistance to Vancomycin.” Fellow faculty members Amit Pai and Nimish Patel will serve as co-investigators on the grant. Dr. Lodise also received a $40,000 extension on a separate grant from Cubist titled, “Comparing Outcomes for Daptomycin, Vancomycin, and Linezolid in the Outpatient Setting.” Associate Professor Leon Cosler will be a coinvestigator for that project.
Associate Professor Amy Barton Pai was recently elected as a Fellow
of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy. Fellowship in the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (FCCP) recognizes excellence in the practice and science of clinical pharmacy. Dr. Barton Pai also received an Adjunct Associate Professor appointment at Albany Medical College in the Department of Medicine.
New Panther Website!
ACPHS web pages have undergone dramatic changes in recent months, and the ACPHS athletics site is no exception. The site, which now operates independent of ACPHS.edu, contains action photography, sports stories and statistics. “The new athletics website is a tremendous addition to the ACPHS Department of Athletics and Recreation,” states Ryan Venter, Director of Athletics. “With its enhanced features, it is a great marketing tool for future Panthers.” Venter started the project shortly after he rolled out the new athletics logo last year. Future plans include audio and video as well as live streaming of basketball stats. “I’ve received a lot of great feedback from student-athletes, coaches, and alumni who really enjoy staying up to date on ACPHS athletics through the site,”
Striking a Balance Helps Student Succeed Rebecca Nashett has that rare combination of excelling in the classroom as well as on the field. A straight A student, she is involved in many extra-curricular activities, including serving as cross country team captain and a resident advisor at Holland and Princeton Suites. “She has a tremendous amount of talent in and out of the classroom, but what is so impressive is that she doesn’t rest on those talents, she tries to enhance them and improve on them as much as possible,” Assistant Registrar and Cross Country Coach Craig Tynan said. “She may appear to be reserved and quiet but there is no questioning her desire and positive attitude to succeed at whatever challenge awaits her.” Nashett said she has always enjoyed challenges. She says,“I want to do my best, and why waste my time doing anything less?” she said. “I can’t completely explain why this is, but it is one of those characteristics that is part of my personality and part of who I am.” Nashett said she was drawn to cross country because of a fluke (she was sick during high school soccer tryouts), but she immediately recognized its strengths. Growing up on an Adirondack lake, Nashett had a love of the outdoors, which cross country helps to nurture. She said she also enjoys the
independence inherent in the sport as well as the camaraderie. Aside from cross country, Nashett is also active in many other student organizations. She serves as Multicultural Club Vice President, the Ultimate Frisbee Club, Outdoors Club, Ski and Snowboard Club, Cross Country Club, Albany Law School Women’s Rugby Club and several professional organizations. “It is rare to find someone who can stay involved in so many activities and organizations on campus while also being one of the top students in her class,” Director of Athletics Ryan Venter said. Resident Director Alison O’Brien said Nashett brings innovation, helpfulness and energy to her role as a resident advisor. “Becca is extremely wonderful to work with,” O’Brien said. To Nashett, the balance she receives through her campus involvement is necessary. “I feel that there is more to life, and that you will miss out on college as an opportunity to grow as an individual if you are just living with your nose in the books,” she said.
ACPHS Soccer “I can’t remember the last time he missed a practice, and he makes it to every game even if he is up the whole night working,” Michonski said. “He is very easy to talk to about any issues, whether it’s with the team or schoolrelated issues. When we are at practice stressed out about upcoming tests or waiting to find out a grade from an exam, he will lighten the mood and tell us about one of his own exam experiences.” Vanderwerken said playing soccer at the College made him a better student because team commitments improved his time-management skills. Vanderwerken added that athletics allows players to “work off anxiety” and balance their mind and body.
Assistant Men’s Soccer Coach Mike Vanderwerken ’00 sees his role as more buddy to the College’s soccer team than coach. His experience as an ACPHS student and soccer player serve him well in this role. “We are lucky to have Mike as an integral part of ACPHS soccer,” Director of Athletics Ryan Venter said. “He is able to relate to all of our student-athletes.” The team’s co-captains, fourth years Ryan Michonski and Neil Kubik, agree that Vanderwerken brings dedication, experience and lightheartedness to the team.
“Mike fully understands the releasefrom-stress benefit that the soccer program provides ACPHS students,” Head Coach Rich Komulainen said. “He also understands the challenging academic program and the need to give flexibility to the players so that soccer doesn’t become a stressor.” Vanderwerken also said players collaborate on and off the field. Players benefit from being on the team by getting to know student-athletes in other class years. This wealth and variety of experience gives players insight into how to succeed at ACPHS. “It forces you into structuring yourself,” Vanderwerken said. “And it gives you a chance to take a break.”
Although he remembers his experiences as an ACPHS student-athlete well, Vanderwerken said his coaching experiences are much different. “It’s harder as a coach,” he said. “You can’t get rid of the anxiety or emotion. It just sits there.” Vanderwerken’s post-college life differs in other ways, too. He moved to Maine following his graduation and worked at a small hospital as a pharmacist. He recognized a need for additional pharmacy help when many orders came in overnight with no pharmacist on duty. To alleviate this problem, Vanderwerken founded New England Pharmacy Solutions, which provides remote screening for drug interactions, pharmacokinetic dosing, drug information answers, IV compatibility and renal dosing adjustments. “Mike is very much looked up to since he graduated from ACPHS, as a practicing pharmacist, and business owner,” Komulainen said. For other reasons, Vanderwerken is also admired. His support of the team, financial and otherwise, is also a cause for high regard. “Mike is a tremendous supporter of ACPHS men’s soccer and ACPHS athletics,” Venter said. “He is a great example of how alumni can stay involved with something they enjoyed while a student at the College.”

The George and Leona Lewis Library with the addition of the first phase of The Center for Teaching and Learning Effectiveness increased study spaces from 211 to 298, going from 9,549 sq. ft. to 13,000 sq. ft. The Vermont Library now has 100 study spaces, up from 44, and has expanded from 1,720 sq. ft. to 2,120 sq. ft.
The Robison Family Dining Hall in Albany went from 200 seats and five service venues to 280 seats and seven service venues. The Vermont Dining Hall has nearly doubled in capacity, going from 68 seats to 126 seats, plus the addition of a new kitchen.
Classrooms and Study Rooms
The Albany Campus has added five classrooms and nine new study rooms on the lower level of Princeton Suites. The Vermont Campus added three classrooms, consultation rooms and a sterile products laboratory.
Time Changes Everything The change from high school to college, no matter where or when, can be a dramatic and rude awakening for any student. The new people, surroundings, and freedom are overwhelming at times. Coming from a small, rural town I can relate to any student who feels this way at one time or another. Although the extracurricular activities available at Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences are imperative, the most important aspect of any college is obviously academics and the academics at ACPHS are challenging to say the least. Due to this, student collaboration, group studying, and peer tutoring are a must especially for first-year students who haven’t seen a curriculum this difficult before. As a first-year in the 2009 – 2010 school year, the areas that were available for this type of studying included the upstairs of the Student Center, the George and Leona Lewis Library, and a few classrooms in the former Classroom Building. The most quiet and peaceful, and therefore the most sought after, of these were the seven private study rooms in the George and Leona Lewis Library that were available by reservation or on first-come-first-serve basis. Throughout the school year this was usually enough to accommodate the students that were seeking these rooms but not once finals came rolling around. On several occasions friends and myself went to the library looking to spend a few hours studying together but found that not only were all the rooms full but there wasn’t even an empty table for us to sit together. This forced us to study in the loud and busy Student Center, obviously not the most beneficial studying
environment. So when the student body began to hear about the changes that were coming the following year at ACPHS, we were all very curious as to exactly what they would be. Of course the most talked about change was the addition of a Tim Horton’s and Cold Stone Creamery. However after the screaming for the ice cream died down, we began to hear that the George and Leona Lewis Library would be moving to the Classroom Building. When ACPHS students returned to the fall 2010 semester we found that this new facility offers distance learning technology, small group spaces for collective work, sufficient individual spaces for quiet study, and an interesting space devoted to important discoveries in science and medicine. This not only provides the resource for group studying and student collaboration, but also encourages it. In the Princeton and Holland building, ten large classrooms, two small classrooms, two large study rooms, and eight private study rooms were added in part to replace the classrooms that were lost in the move of the library into the Classroom Building and to add to the possible places for students to study collaboratively. So when the time for finals comes this semester, this student won’t be worried about finding a place to study with his friends. Of course the library was not the only change to the ACPHS campus. As mentioned before, the addition of a Tim Horton’s and Cold Stone Creamery was pleasantly welcomed by the student body. Also, a redesign of the Student Center has made this area more aesthetically pleasing, welcoming, and comfortable for eating, relaxing, and quick studying in be-
tween classes. The food service provider is another new item on the long list of improvements that have been made. Chartwells has certainly increased the quality of food that can be found in the Student Center which is seen in the addition of the option of soups by Au Bon Pain. The increase in the hours of operation in the Student Center is one change that is an unarguable improvement. This not only allows students to eat at later times but also permits those who enjoy the atmosphere of the Student Center to stay later studying there. Many students have classes that run past the dinner hour through the week. With the increased hours these students are not forced to eat early before their classes. Also, extended hours on the weekends are a convenience that wasn’t enjoyed in past years. When asked how they felt about the expanded hours, Kassandra Lewis, a second-year Pharm-D student replied, “The extended hours in the dining hall make it easier to fit meals into my hectic schedule.” With the difficulty of the curriculum, convenience for the student body should be a primary concern for ACPHS administrators. The changes that have occurred on campus are a pleasant reminder that these administrators do care about the students and our personal well-being. Those attending Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences should appreciate that fact. This student does. Zachary Paddock Pharm-D Candidate Class of 2015 firstname.lastname@example.org
Changes also included relocating and redesigning the Alfred J. Collins, Jr. ’53 Boardroom.
Alfred J. Collins, Jr. ’53 Chairman of the board of trustees With his wife Marie
Brian Bartle ‘62 remembers when one or two entrees were offered to students in the cafeteria each day. He states, “I worked in the cafeteria from 19601962. Mrs. Kirkpatrick and her husband Ozzie operated it back then. They treated students like family. We didn’t have the choices available to current students or even evening meals then. But it was prepared fresh each day and being a worker, I got to eat for free!”
David Stack ‘76 Mike Lotano ‘60
was disqualified, so today the entire team is hopeful that she can make her time. Lotano states, “We could see that her gait wasn’t smooth and that she went off stride. We’ve made some adjustments and now we’ll watch her today to see what happens.”
by donna Reichel, Editor It is a beautiful crisp morning as Mike Lotano ‘60 leads me around the grounds at the Harness Track at Saratoga Springs, NY. As he leads me closer to the stables, I see their heads popping out one by one. “This one’s mine” he says as the first horse he shows me seems to greet his owner with recognition. This is a big day for KC Sunshine. Today she will race in a qualifying meet to see if she can compete in a race the following week. The three year old went off gait and
Training and racing any horse takes time and dedication. Lotano has a team that makes that happen. They seem to work together like clockwork. Each person knows their role and they move with expertise. As they prepare her for the qualifier, they begin the preparations that most attendees to the track never see. I am indeed fortunate to have a behind the scenes look at the whole process. Lotano’s love of horses began long ago at the tender age of 7. He used to spend his summers on a friends farm and acquired first-hand knowledge of what it took to raise and train a winner. He says, “I loved spending my summers there. They would take me to all of the fairs and I learned a lot about harness racing from them. Back in those days we would ride bareback.” Through the years his involvement
continued even after graduating from ACPHS. He says, “I would work and train in between pharmacy jobs. I eventually became a driver after racing in a number of qualifying meets and taking the USBA written test.” At one point in his busy life he was working three jobs and working to get his A License so that he could race. This was in addition to being a husband and busy father to six children. One of his most memorable races was at Green Mountain Race Track. He was at the reigns as his horse Seaway Captain worked his way through six inches of mud on the tracks. “There was a spring snow that had melted into this deep mud of several inches. Now that was a struggle,” he says with a laugh. As most people know, there is a dangerous aspect to this sport. And Lotano has seen his share of accidents. In one particular race he completely flipped out of the riding seat injuring his shoulder. He says, “It can be dangerous when everyone is taking off and we are inches from each other. Things happen and people get hurt. I was lucky that I walked away from it. “
Although he currently owns four horses with alum Mike Riggi ’60, longtime friend Claude Bourgeous and his son Perry Lotano, over the years he has owned and trained over 40. He says, “I have some great memories from training and driving these horses. It has been great fun. In Saratoga we start in March and go right through to the middle of December, so we keep busy.” As we chat Lotano keeps his eye on the preparations of KC Sunshine. The whole team wants her to do well today. He jumps in when needed to calm her down. She is feisty and looks ready to race. He says, “Once she gets out there she is all business.” The horse is led to a checking area before she can compete in the qualifier. As the owners, trainers and riders enter they banter back and forth. This may be a competition, but it is clear that they share a common bond and some have been friends for years. “I know many of the owners,” Lotano says. “I’ve been in Saratoga since 1966. This is my life.” Finally the race is called and the horses are led to the track. Lotano gathers by the fence with the rest of the owners, some with stopwatches in hand. They gallop around the track following the racing truck which eventually retracts the gate and leaves them on their own to compete. I am watching the horses but occasionally glance over to Lotano to see a man who obviously loves being where he is. And as KC Sunshine beats the time and qualifies for the next race I see him smile. “Now that’s what we wanted to see,” he says.

The Science of Breeding a Winner David Stack ’76 feels his connection to horses can be traced to his Irish ancestry. He states, “I grew up in the country and I rode however, I wouldn’t say I was an avid rider. My love of horse racing has more to do with tradition, the love of the sport and my ties to Saratoga.” Stack’s family has been involved in the Saratoga racing scene for many years. His grandmother and cousins who came here from Ireland operated casinos and his father ran a bar and grill there for many years. “It’s just always been a part of my family. I soon realized that my contribution would be breeding and racing horses. I wanted to be part of the New York State breeding program but if I was going to do it, I wanted to do it the right way,” he says.
#5 Dave at Belmont, NY
He has had his share of success over the years that he feels can be contributed in part to the science of horse racing. His background in pharmacy and interest in genetics has helped him breed and race some of Saratoga’s most notable winners including Separatist who was trained by Barclay Tagg. A trainer most racing fans have heard of.
One of his most memorable moments was in 1997 when his horse “Dave” was named New York Turf Horse of the Year. He says, “I still remember it like it was yesterday. It was our first horse at our first racetrack and that’s why it was so unbelievable. And last year when Separatist won, that was an incredible moment as well.”
“I love the scientific aspect to breeding and racing. It all has to do with genetics, training and the physiology of the horse. Science is a big part of being successful. It’s a genetic game. For example you learn which horses to breed to correct and straighten crooked front legs or take the best qualities from two winners to produce an outstanding racehorse.” Stack says.
Stack enjoys the sport which he says is cultural and a way of life. Currently the majority owner of four mares he says, “Owners have our own language and way of talking. We have our own acronyms and those of us who live it like the challenge, the drive and dedication it takes to participate in this sport. You get hooked on it like golf and just like golf you never get good at it. I love it.”

You Can Go Home For pharmacist Mark Hunter ’00 it’s all about community. Owner of Nicholson Pharmacy in Belmont, NY, he likes the fact that he knows his customers by name and compares the “smallness” of it with his experience at ACPHS. He says, “At ACPHS I wasn’t just a number. I loved the smallness of the school. It felt like a family and professors were always willing to help.” Hunter is now practicing in the same community he grew up in. He says, “I graduated from a close knit high school and everyone knew each other. I married my high school sweetheart and now I’m helping the same people who saw me grow up.” Hunter who comes from an ACPHS legacy family, purchased the pharmacy from his parents. He says, “My Dad is a graduate of ACPHS as well as my aunt and uncle.” He said there was never any question of where he would go to school. When he was in High School he visited the campus and ran into Professor Denuzzo who laughed and said, “Oh no, not another Hunter.” Currently operating a one man pharmacy, he likes that he is in control of his future as well as his leisure time. He says, “Most days I work from 9:00 am-5:30 pm. I have time to spend with my wife Sarah and son Nolan. We enjoy boating and fishing as well as Bills and Sabres games. It’s a great life.”
His advice to current students is to remain patient focused after graduation and to explore working at a small independent pharmacy as an option. He says, “This is a pretty good deal and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.” Classmates can contact Hunter by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
