President’s message Expanding research to enhance education
Pursuing excellence. That has been the theme and great strength of an Albany College of Pharmacy education for many years. As an academic institution, our focus is on advancing health care through education and scientific, clinical and humanistic research. As we continually enhance the research environment at ACP, we remain committed to expanding research activities across the institution, advancing the overall body of knowledge in many diverse disciplines. However, we also are committed to expanding these efforts with careful attention to ways in which we can coalesce the talents and interests of our faculty around critical themes. I am pleased to report that we have made significant progress in this endeavor over the past year. This edition of our President’s Report, the annual publication of research, scholarly activity and donor support at ACP, is … well … focused on those efforts! The cover story examines the variety of ways in which ACP faculty are involved with cardiovascular disease (page 8). This is one of many disease states in which ACP has a number of faculty conducting scientific and clinical inquiry. From basic science to patient care and outcomes assessment, ACP faculty are involved along the full continuum of research activities aimed at a deeper understanding and improved treatment of America’s No. 1 killer. We welcomed the creation of our second institute last fall, the Research Institute for Health Outcomes (RIHO; page 4). Under the direction of Department of Pharmacy Practice faculty member Leon Cosler ’82,
Ph.D., the Institute brings together the research interests of more than a dozen ACP faculty members into a diverse, transdisciplinary group. Its mission is to work in collaboration with researchers locally, nationally and internationally to respond to the rapidly increasing need for high-quality, scientifically sound medical and financial data in health outcomes and pharmacoeconomic research. RIHO provides a perfect complement to our Pharmaceutical Research Institute (PRI), which is focused on drug discovery and development. Together, these two entities provide our students first-hand exposure to research across the full spectrum of pharmaceutical development and patient care – from the bench to the bedside – and advance ACP’s leadership role in helping to develop better, more effective medications. We have continued the development of PRI with the establishment of our Center for NanoPharmaceuticals (page 2), thanks to a $2 million grant from the New York State Legislature in 2006. We have continued to take a leadership role in nephrology research through the work of the Albany Nephrology Pharmacy Group (ANephRx; page 7), and we have continued to pursue breakthrough advances in basic science, highlighted in this issue by the work of Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences Chair Bill Millington, Ph.D., on the neurological triggers of addiction (page 6).
Doctor of Pharmacy candidates Salvatore Ferro ’09 and Kara Jastemski ’07. We are grateful for your continued support of all of these efforts. We closed a successful Capital Campaign last fall, achieving 180 percent of our goal, and welcomed a record level of contributions to the ACP Annual Fund in 2005-06. Just as our research contributions are critical to the advancement of education in the sciences and the advancement of health care, so are your contributions vital to help us attain our goals.
Our focus on bringing the power of all of our research activities to our students (page 10) also has continued through expanded opportunities for students like 1

will help doctors pinpoint brain tumors and fight them in their earliest stages. It will help blast chemotherapy directly into cancerous breast tissue to help patients fight the disease without the debilitating side effects of current chemotherapy treatments. It will lead to the reformulation of old drugs so that they are safer and more effective. Nanopharmaceutical technology is one of the most exciting new fields in medical and pharmaceutical research, and Albany College of Pharmacy has been a leader since founding the Pharmaceutical Research Institute in 2002. Now the College is taking an even greater step forward in the development of this critical drug discovery and delivery platform through the creation of its Center for NanoPharmaceuticals. Operating under the umbrella of PRI, the Center is among few of its kind internationally. It is bringing together experts in science, medicine and technology from ACP, the region, state, nation and the world to attack disease with the smallest particles currently available in science. Located at the University of Albany’s East Campus in East Greenbush, just across the Hudson River from Albany, the Center was made possible through a $2 million grant from the New York State Legislature in 2006. It represents the third phase of PRI’s development, following the construction of preformulation and stability testing laboratories in 2005, and continues the College’s emphasis on moving pharmaceutical research and delivery into new territory. “This is really unique because we are bringing nanotechnology, biotechnology, drug formulation and drug delivery together under one roof,’’ says PRI
Executive Vice President and Chairman Shaker Mousa, Ph.D., who worked in drug discovery at DuPont Pharmaceuticals Co. for 17 years before joining ACP. “We want to use all the skills of people from different disciplines and different angles who come from all over the globe.’’ By the close of 2006, as equipment was still being ordered and labs set up, the Center already had $1.5 million in contracts with such entities as the United States Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health, along with private biotechnology firms and foundations. Five scientists from within the United States and Russia had been recruited to join a 20-member interdisciplinary staff. Dr. Mousa plans to add five more in 2007. Their pursuit focuses on creating and manipulating particles that are 10,000 times smaller than a human hair. With these, drugs can be steered to specific cellular targets anywhere in the body, where they can do good while minimizing risks and painful side effects. “It’s like a missile trying to hit the target without hitting the friendly cells,’’ Dr. Mousa says. In addition, traditional medicines
can be reformulated to eliminate some of the barriers biology presents, such as limited supply. Dr. Mousa is hopeful that new-generation drugs can combat and treat vascular diseases, heal skin wounds and even grow blood vessels in heart patients. Another benefit for ACP includes the opportunity for students to participate in cutting-edge experiments and learn about new discoveries in pharmaceutical research nearly as soon as they are made. “We have students who are in their fifth and sixth year involved throughout the Center,’’ Dr. Mousa says. “They need to be involved in this environment. In the future we won’t have a one-size-fits-all approach to discovery and we need to be preparing future generations of researchers.’’

Two trillion is almost an unthinkable
number. But think on it we must. Total health care expenditures in the United States were projected to be nearly $2.2 trillion in 2006, and are expected to rise to more than $4 trillion by 2015, according to the National Coalition on Healthcare. Escalating health care costs will be one of the most significant challenges to global economies in this century. What are the costs of specific medical interventions and how do they affect patients and insurance companies? Does health care spending bring the most value for the dollar? Which medical interventions are best for the patient and what are the end results of that care? Responding to the rapidly increasing need for high-quality, scientifically sound medical and financial data in health outcomes and pharmacoeconomic research, Albany College of Pharmacy has established the Research Institute for Health Outcomes to begin to address some of these crucial questions. 4
“Health professionals and decision makers will require increasing amounts of scientific evidence aimed at maximizing patient health with limited financial resources,” says Leon Cosler ’82, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice and RIHO’s first director. The Institute merges the research activities and clinical expertise of more than a dozen ACP faculty members into a
centrated focus area in these critical disciplines,” says Dean Mehdi Boroujerdi, Pharm.D., Ph.D. “We are well positioned to take a leading role in health outcomes and pharmacoeconomic research, providing much-needed data that will benefit both patients and providers.” The Institute’s research will include several primary areas: • Analyzing local, state, national and international health care databases • Conducting evaluations of health service use patterns • Evaluating clinically oriented pharmacy services and targeted disease management programs • Conducting systematic reviews of published studies in order to summarize therapeutic effectiveness of new and existing medical technologies • Evaluating adherence to clinical treatment guidelines • Estimating costs of treatment utilizing a variety of data sources • Creating and analyzing economic decision models and simulation of the effects of medical interventions, diagnostic tests or health policy decisions.

“The opportunities for collaborative work on our own campus and with researchers at other institutions will deliver valuable data to improve both the quality and affordability of health care,” Dr. Cosler says.
One such opportunity Dr. Cosler currently is investigating along with faculty members Sarah Scarpace, Pharm.D., BCOP, and Machaon Bonafede, Ph.D., is in the field of cancer surveillance and treatment. Their goal is to match insurance data from upstate New York with the official cancer registry maintained at the New York State Department of Health. “The project will yield a database of confirmed cancer patients that can be used to conduct a variety of outcomes research questions,” says Dr. Cosler. By comparing insurance claims to the tumor registry, the trio will be able to glean much information about the prevalence of certain types of cancer, disease stage and demographics as well as treatment trends and costs, explains Dr. Scarpace. Patrick D. Meek, Pharm.D., assistant director of RIHO and an assistant professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice, is using a large managed care claims database to study disease management
costs for patients with inflammatory bowel disease. He also is reviewing hepatitis B management strategies. Other research interests include the development of methods for costing of drug therapy for use in outcomes studies, and risk adjustment methods for evaluation of treatment interventions in inflammatory bowel disease. Margaret Malone, Ph.D., FCCP, chair of the Department of Pharmacy Practice, and John Polimeni, Ph.D., an assistant professor of economics in the department, in collaboration with col-
leagues at Albany Medical College, are evaluating several outcome-based aspects of patients undergoing bariatric surgery. Most recently they have examined and published the impact of binge-eating behavior and depression on weight-loss outcomes after surgery. They also have collected data on the use of nutritional supplements, correlation with preoperative weight loss and overall surgical outcomes and the effect of bariatric surgery on calcium, vitamin D and parathyroid hormone levels. Their findings were presented at the 2006 National Obesity Research meeting. Other faculty collaborations include those with New York State’s Medicaid Drug Utilization Review program, the Thomson-Medstat Marketscan Database, Stratton Veteran’s Administration Medical Center and the Upstate New York Consortium for Health Care Policy and Research.

The cure, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves … Bill Millington probes the brain to end addiction
The answer, Bill Millington, Ph.D.,
William Millington, Ph.D., and colleagues are researching ways to prevent addiction.
believes, to one of the world’s most debilitating diseases may be a drug produced by the world’s most sophisticated instrument – the human brain. Dr. Millington has identified a small peptide produced in the brain that inhibits the neural pathway responsible for drug and alcohol addiction. Cut off the flow of information down the “pleasure pathway” and you stop the craving for addictive substances like nicotine, alcohol, morphine and amphetamines, as well as powerful prescription medications that also can lead to addiction. “If we can find a way to block the euphoria these drugs produce, we may be able to prevent patients from becoming addicted to prescription drugs like morphine and oxycodone, and help people recover from addiction to alcohol, nicotine and other drugs of abuse,” says Dr. Millington, acting chair in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. The peptide, glycyl-glutamine – or GQ – is produced from β-endorphin, an endogenous opiate-like peptide, in the brain.
The discovery of GQ’s unique properties arose from basic studies on the neurobiology of addiction. This research indicated that GQ is produced by neurons that inhibit the addictive process. This would explain why GQ is able to counteract the rewarding effects of a variety of addictive drugs and prevent the psychological and physical withdrawal symptoms of morphine or nicotine addiction. The peptide is small, about the size of most commercially produced drugs, but one obstacle Dr. Millington and his colleagues faced was that GQ won’t cross the blood-brain barrier. They overcame this obstacle by designing a cyclic derivative of GQ capable of entering the brain from the circulation. Now they are working with ACP colleague Floyd Brownewell, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the Department of Arts and Sciences, to improve the molecule. Dr. Brownewell is designing molecules that will enter the brain with better efficacy and act in the brain with greater potency. Dr. Brownewell’s work emphasizes the importance of teamwork in translating basic science research into clinically useful drugs. It also illustrates ACP’s growing ability to solve research problems with a variety of expertise. Other key members of Dr. Millington’s team include Gokhan Göktalay, M.D., Ph.D., and Sinan Cavun, M.D., Ph.D., visiting scientists from Uludag University in Bursa, Turkey, as well as collaborators at Wake Forest University and Ion Technologies Inc. in Winston-Salem, N.C., and the University of MissouriKansas City. They now are seeking funding to transform GQ into a potentially useful drug. At ACP, Dr. Brownewell will continue to develop better cyclic GQ-like molecules and Prashant Chikhale, Ph.D., an
associate professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, will study how effectively the drugs cross the blood-brain barrier. Dean Mehdi Boroujerdi, Pharm.D., Ph.D., will serve as a consultant on pharmacokinetic studies designed to elucidate the time course and metabolism of GQ analogs. Shaker Mousa, Ph.D., executive vice president and chairman of the Pharmaceutical Research Institute at ACP, will consult on the drug development potential of the research. “ACP is a great place for this type of research because we have faculty with the expertise necessary to conduct basic academic research – to identify molecules in the brain with interesting pharmacological properties, for example – and the ability to develop clinically useful drugs from endogenous molecules,” Dr. Millington says. According to the Partnership for a Drug-free America, 23 million people in the United States needed treatment for drugs or alcohol in 2005. Only 10 percent received treatment, according to the organization’s data. Many still believe addiction to be a moral issue, rather than a medical problem. Dr. Millington disagrees, pointing to genetic evidence that continues to emerge from rapid advances in neuroscience research. “For pharmacologists, addiction is now a treatable disorder,” Dr. Millington says. “There was a time, and it wasn’t that long ago, when we thought schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders resulted from moral weakness or possession by demons. “Perhaps in the future we will also treat addiction as a medical problem, not a moral failure.”
Focused on a quiet killer Kidney research growing at ACP
The Albany Nephrology Pharmacy Group (ANephRx) at ACP is gaining momentum in its research and outreach regarding medication use in patients with kidney disease. Formed in 2005 as a confluence of nephrology pharmacy researchers at the College, the group consists of George Bailie, Pharm.D., Ph.D., associate dean for research and graduate education, Darren Grabe ’93, Pharm.D., and Harold Manley ’96, Pharm.D., BCPS, all faculty in the Department of Pharmacy Practice. The group also has added its first fellowship. Katie Pallotta ’06, Pharm.D., has joined the group for a two-year nephrology pharmacy fellowship in research and education. ANephRx’s focus during 2006 was on two research efforts in particular: assessing the impact that community pharmacists could have in identifying and screening patients for early kidney disease, and analyzing changes in prescriptions during daily nocturnal home hemodialysis (DNHHD), the lesser-studied but promising type of dialysis used by some patients with end-stage kidney disease.
In the first project, the group collaborated with Department of Pharmacy Practice faculty member Mario Zeolla ’97, Pharm.D., BCPS, a community pharmacist. “Most patients with early kidney disease are asymptomatic; they don’t know they have it,” Dr. Bailie says. “If we can identify patients early in the process and make the appropriate interventions, we can significantly slow their progression toward kidney failure.” Kidney disease quietly has become a public health issue of near-epidemic proportions. More than 20 million people in the United States have chronic kidney disease, yet the public is relatively unaware of the threat. Community pharmacists are in an ideal position to identify patients at risk, particularly those with diabetes or hypertension. “This is an important long-term public health initiative,” says Dr. Grabe. On the nocturnal home hemodialysis project, ANephRx is trying to determine predictors of medication use and associated outcomes, says Dr. Bailie. A reduction in medication use could improve patients’
overall health and quality of life. The project is an extension of the group’s ongoing collaboration with Christopher Hoy, M.D., a nephrologist at the Rubin Dialysis Center in Clifton Park, N.Y. ANephRx has been examining Dr. Hoy’s data on DNHHD patients for medication utilization, prescribing patterns and outcomes, resulting in some of the first literature published on medication use in these patients. Dr. Grabe and Dr. Manley presented abstracts on the data at the American Society of Nephrology meeting in San Diego last fall: Dr. Manley on the medication burden of patients with kidney disease, and Dr. Grabe on the treatment of anemia and bone disease in these patients and associated outcomes. Their work on DNHHD partially is funded by a grant from ACP. ANephRx also hopes to access a national database of children with chronic kidney disease who have received kidney transplants. “We know a lot about medication use in the adult dialysis population, but pediatric data is scarce,” says Dr. Grabe. “The drugs are approved for adults, so pediatric nephrologists must adjust the dosages for children. We’d like to use this data to make recommendations about their use.” All three ANephRx members are well-known in the field. Dr. Manley is chair of the Nephrology Practice Research Network of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy, and Dr. Grabe is the chair-elect. Dr. Bailie is cochair of the Medical Advisory Board of the Northeast New York Chapter of the National Kidney Foundation, while Dr. Grabe serves as co-vice chair. Dr. Bailie and Dr. Manley are principals of Nephrology Pharmacy Associates based in Verona, Wis., and are fellows of the American Society of Nephrology.
ANephRx researchers Darren Grabe ’93, Pharm.D., Harold Manley ’96, Pharm.D., BCPS, and George Baile, Pharm.D., Ph.D., discuss their work on medication use in patients with kidney disease.
Getting to the heart of the matter ACP faculty study cardiovascular disease from many angles
Gina Garrison ’94, Pharm.D., speaks with a patient at Latham Internal Medicine and Pediatrics.
From the bench to the bedside, ACP faculty are deployed in a wide range of research projects aimed at solving mysteries of cardiovascular diseases and improving the quality of patient care and education related to this deadly disease. At Latham Internal Medicine and Pediatrics of Albany Medical Center, patients have access to pharmacy services provided by Gina Garrison ’94, Pharm.D., and her sixth-year ACP Pharm.D. clerkship students. Working collaboratively with physicians and nurses, Dr. Garrison and her students collect patient medical history information, discuss medication benefits or side effects and recommend drug therapies to patients during office visits. Dr. Garrison’s practice site is an example of – and catalyst for – the widening recognition of the valuable role pharmacists can provide in prevention and management of disease. “Our patients and clinicians appreciate the valuable drug information and treatment recommendations we are able to provide about lifestyle changes and medications,’’ says Dr. Garrison, an associate professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice. While Dr. Garrison is involved with patient counseling and drug management consultations for a variety of medical conditions, she and her students spend significant time working with conditions related to heart disease. This was the impetus behind the one-year study Dr. Garrison is conducting along with other ACP faculty, Aimee Strang ’98, Pharm.D., BCPS, Shannon Rivers ’04, Pharm.D., BCPS, and Teresa Lubowski ’85, Pharm.D. Using a $20,000 unrestricted educational grant from Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, 56 sixth-year Pharm.D. students interviewed and educated adult patients about heart disease risk at three medical prac-
tices. Pharmacy students enter patientspecific medical data into an interactive computer program to visually demonstrate the effects of controlling coronary heart disease (CHD) risk factors, such as high blood pressure, smoking and high cholesterol. Patient adherence to prescribed medications and overall satisfaction with the education session are assessed in the study, as are student benefits of gaining longitudinal experience with assessing CHD risk factors in a variety of patients. Patient response to the study has been positive, learning about the strong, collective effects of CHD risk factors and the importance of taking prescribed medications for conditions that contribute to heart disease.
“One patient enjoyed learning about her risk of heart disease so much, she wanted to know if her sister could get enrolled in the study, too,” Dr. Garrison says. Such explorations are consistent with ACP’s push to help move medical care beyond simply reacting to disease to a broader focus on prevention and cure. In addition to providing – and advocating for – expanded patient care and counseling services, ACP faculty also actively are engaged in other research related to the full spectrum of cardiovascular disease, including outcomes research and basic science. As important as their own investigation, faculty say, is the opportunity for ACP students to participate, enhancing the value of their education.
“It’s important for our students to look at the health care system and achieve a greater depth of knowledge about the patients,’’ says Robert Hamilton ’77, Pharm.D., a professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice. “We try to make them understand that it’s a patient with a disease, not a disease we’re giving the drug to.’’ Since 2004, Dr. Hamilton has studied New York’s Medicaid rolls to see whether patients with congestive heart failure are receiving the recommended drugs – usually a combination of ACE inhibitors and beta blockers. Doing so can add years to their lives, but Dr. Hamilton found that fewer than 20 percent received this combination in 2003. Dr. Hamilton has sent letters to recipients who were not receiving recommended therapy, suggesting they talk to their doctors. He believes that implementing Collaborative Drug Therapy Management in New York would help more patients get the right treatment for cardiovascular and other diseases by bringing pharmacists into the dialogue earlier in the process.
orative pharmacyrelated academic and research environment at ACP to develop drugs that prevent and treat septic shock. Among his recent findings, he has discovered that the lethal condition originates in the brain, rather than in blood vessels. It is a breakthrough that opens the way for treatments that can prevent septic shock and save lives. Dr. Feleder’s success demonstrates the importance of collaborative efforts between medical and pharmaceutical scientists. “The interaction with other scientists is completely different from working with other doctors,’’ he explains, “because at ACP we can take our knowledge to make new drugs. “Doctors don’t think about making

Shaker Mousa, Ph.D., executive vice president and chairman of the Pharmaceutical Research Institute, is researching a way to stop clots through a combination of natural ingredients.
A veteran of DuPont Pharmaceuticals Co., Dr. Mousa is the inventor of the Cardiolite Scan, which has become the gold standard for detecting early signs of heart attack. Among Dr. Mousa’s many current projects, he is seeking a combination of natural ingredients to help keep the heart healthy. Dr. Mousa is developing supplements using garlic and the materials in purple grape juice and pomegranate, which, when combined correctly, stop clots. This is another activity that highlights the important focus of exposing students to cutting-edge research so that they may benefit from the knowledge of faculty pursuing breakthrough discoveries in a wide range of disciplines. The more students who have the opportunity to get involved in research during their academic careers, the more who will be likely to go on to conduct their own studies and, in turn, share their expertise with a new generation of aspiring scientists and clinicians. “We find that one plus one doesn’t equal two,’’ Dr. Mousa says. “One plus one equals thousands.” 9
What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing. â€“ Aristotle
There are many opportunities to learn by doing at ACP. Beginning with children as early as third grade and continuing right up through the sixth year of the Doctor of Pharmacy program, students are actively engaged on some level with research projects â€“ from the basic to the mind boggling. New this winter at the College is the ACP Academy, designed to interest Albany Public School students in third grade and up in the sciences and math. The program eventually will have students in all grade levels through high school, and will culminate with ACPâ€™s long-standing summer research program for students between the junior and senior year of high school. ACP students participate in research with faculty mentors throughout the academic year, and also can pursue a Summer Research Internship that provides a stipend and housing for those interested in pursuing laboratory, clinical and other research projects. The eight-week program is open to full-time students in all years and from all degree programs. It is yet another way for students to broaden their academic and professional interests at ACP.
Fountain of youth ACP programs interest kids in science, math
Albany College of Pharmacy is
home to a new after-school academy for elementary school students from Albany’s Delaware Community School (formerly Public School 18), expanding the College’s work with students from the local community to help encourage interest – and excellence! – in math and science. The College launched the ACP Academy in February, welcoming 28 third graders to campus twice a week for an eight-week science enrichment program. The children engage in scientific exploration under the guidance of a teacher from the elementary school, with 24 ACP students as one-on-one mentors. “We’ve had a huge amount of interest from students who want to work with these children,” says Tiffany Gutierrez, ACP’s executive director of financial aid and coordinator of the program. The academy is part of the Help Yourself Foundation, launched last year by former Union College President Roger Hull, S.J.D., to create college-based programs for disadvantaged children who show potential. ACP President James J. Gozzo, Ph.D., joined Dr. Hull and The College of St. Rose President R. Mark Sullivan, Ed.D., in meetings with local newspaper editors and reporters in the fall to discuss the program (St. Rose and ACP are the first two local colleges to start Help Yourself academies). The program attracted extensive media coverage. “This is the right idea at the right time,” Dr. Hull says. “Most educational experts agree that if one is going to have an impact on young children’s educational development, those children must be reached by the third grade.” The benefits of the program are twofold, says Dr. Gozzo, who promised an ACP scholarship to students who complete the program and are subsequently
accepted to the College. “We want to encourage these students at an early age to succeed, to help them build confidence in themselves academically, particularly in math and science,” he says. “We also believe our students, faculty and staff will benefit from this program through their interactions with these young students, enriching our entire campus community.” The College’s goal, Dr. Gozzo says, is to encourage the students to continue in the program from third grade on. Eventually, the ACP Academy will have 10 different grade levels of elementary, middle and high school students participating, with the College’s existing High School Summer Research Program serving as a capstone experience between the junior and senior years of high school. Started in 1999, the summer program provides hands-on research experience in pharmaceutical sciences as well as exposure to a college campus for students who are preparing to make choices about the next step in their education. Six students participated in the summer program in 2006, spending three days each week involved in lab research, one day conducting research literature reviews or participating in workshops, and one day visiting medical and research facilities. Students were introduced to experimental methods, scientific writing and laboratory notebook keeping by program director David Clarke, Ph.D., associate professor and chair of the Department of Arts and Sciences. They also learned about drug discovery and clinical trials through the Drug Development Lecture Series presented by faculty from ACP and Albany Medical College. Students were paired and assigned faculty mentors to work on specific research projects for the duration of the program. Sam Broadaway and Julia Cos-
grove of Albany High School worked on a project titled “Effect of Castration on Mitochondrial and Sarcoplasmic Reticular Function” with Professor Robert Levin, Ph.D., of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Zoya Aziz of Academy of the Holy Names in Albany and Eugene Kipniss of Albany High worked with Shaker Mousa, Ph.D., executive vice president and chairman of the Pharmaceutical Research Institute at ACP, on a project called “Anticoagulant Potency of Glycosaminoglycan (GAG) Fractions.” Ryan Sanford of Loudonville Christian School and Brittany Bobb of Albany High worked on a project titled “Developmental Analysis and Genetic Mapping of Eph Receptor Signaling Genes” with Richard Dearborn Jr., Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. “By far the best part of the program was working alongside a professor and helping him with original research,” Ryan says. “One of the greatest things I learned was how my love for chemistry and biochemistry can be applied in an industrial way to research and produce drugs.”
The ACP Academy pairs ACP mentors with third-graders from the Delaware Community School for an after-school science enrichment program.
Working for the cure Salvatore Ferro ’09
Sal Ferro '09 presented his research on the costs of colon cancer treatment at the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting.
Salvatore Ferro ’09 was surrounded.
Just midway through his third year in ACP’s Pharm.D. program, Sal was at the Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium in San Francisco in January 2006 to present his research on “Variation in the Cost of Treatment for Colorectal Cancer.” Looking around at the sea of oncologists clustering around his poster, he realized they all wanted more information. “Doctors just don’t know how much chemotherapy costs,” says Sal. “I brought 50 poster handouts with me and they were all gone in a minute.” For Sal, presenting as the lead author of a study undertaken with a team of faculty and researchers from ACP, the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center at the University of Rochester Medical Center and the Awareness of Neutropenia in Chemotherapy (ANC) Coordinating Center in Albany, the trip was a revelation. Collaborating with him were ACP faculty members Leon Cosler ’82, Ph.D, director of the new Research Institute for Health Outcomes at ACP, and Sarah Scarpace, Pharm.D., BCOP, both assistant professors in the Department of Pharmacy Practice. The team also included a combi-
nation of off-site researchers ranging from oncologists to bio-statisticians in Albany and Rochester. A second poster and abstract on costs in colorectal cancer was presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting in June 2006. “The fact that Sal’s abstract and poster were accepted at a meeting like ASCO, the world’s largest professional meeting for oncologists, is a phenomenal accomplishment for anyone doing research, let alone a student,” says Dr. Cosler. This past fall, Sal, in conjunction with some of the same key players, including Drs. Cosler and Scarpace and ACP student Brian Myer ’07, a senior in the Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences program, presented their work “Are Phenothiazines Overused in Cancer Chemotherapy” at the 2006 American College of Clinical Pharmacy meeting. Their research showed a significantly higher rate of neutropenia, a serious side effect resulting from a lowered white blood cell count, in patients who took phenothiazines, a class of drugs used to treat nausea during chemotherapy regimens. Sal knew early on that he wanted to specialize in oncology and first met with Dr. Scarpace, a board certified oncology pharmacist, at the start of his second year at ACP in the fall of 2005. “I had only been teaching at ACP for about a month when Sal approached me,” Dr. Scarpace said. “He knew I was in the field and wanted to get started on a
research project right away.” Dr. Scarpace set up a hands-on experience in a clinical oncology pharmacy setting at the University of Rochester Medical Center. She also referred him to Dr. Cosler. In his first research project, Sal found there was no place to go to find out how much it costs to treat someone with colon cancer. “You do a literature search and you come up with nothing,” says Dr. Scarpace. “No one has these numbers.” And the numbers he came up with were astounding. Costs varied considerably, particularly in late-stage illness, with drug regimens differing by as much as $36,699 per patient. “The implications are stunning,” Dr. Cosler says. “The escalating costs of more advanced chemotherapy drugs and supportive agents for colorectal cancer will have a tremendous impact on health care.” Sal’s work is ongoing. He has submitted the colorectal cancer study to Cancer, a prestigious journal in the field, and has plans to prepare the neutropenia research for publication as well. He also will help to raise funds for cancer research as treasurer of ACP’s new chapter of the American Cancer Society’s Colleges Against Cancer. With two years at ACP still to go, Sal’s future goals are clear. “Cancer will affect every single one of us, either directly or through someone we love,” he says. “I hope to improve the lives of those affected by cancer, through a job in the pharmacy industry bringing new drugs to market or by working directly with patients as an oncology pharmacist. “The most important thing I learned from my research is that a small group of key people can make a difference,” says Sal.
Swiss please! Kara Jastemski ’07
Kara Jastemski ’07 has seen how pharmacy is practiced halfway around the world. Her world never will be the same. A sixth-year student in ACP’s Doctor of Pharmacy program, Kara completed a five-week rotation in Basel, Switzerland, last summer, opening her eyes to a panorama of career options in pharmacy, particularly in research. “Having the chance to see and experience international pharmacy had a tremendous impact on me as a future professional,” she says. “Each day brought the opportunity to be exposed to something new.” Kara participated in the second year of ACP’s new Pharm.D. advanced pharmacy practice experience elective in Basel. She worked with Andre Scholer, Ph.D., head of the Clinical Chemistry Laboratory at the University Hospital. The hospital chemistry lab where Kara worked was focused on toxicology. She analyzed urine samples to monitor patients in drug rehabilitation facilities and worked side-by-side with Dr. Scholer to solve complex patient cases. She also had the opportunity to learn chromatography, a technique used for the separation of mixtures.
One of the highlights of Kara’s experience was a research project undertaken with Dr. Scholer and another chemist. Kara tested and compared more than 20 urine samples of patients at rehab centers on five different kinds of drug-abuse tests to see if the tests showed consistent results. Her findings were presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society of Swiss Chemists last fall. “This experience showed me a totally different side of pharmacy,” Kara says. “I had never really done research before and realized that it may be something I’d be interested in doing in the future. I’m used to reading about studies and their results but this was the first time I could actually see results firsthand.” Day trips to laboratory, hospital and community settings gave her a chance to see other areas in which pharmacists practice in Switzerland. “The time spent with pharmacists at the hospital gave me a very different perspective on international pharmacy,” says Kara. “In Switzerland, doctors have begun to hand medications out directly to patients, causing a decrease in the need for pharmacists. It’s very different from
“Having the chance to see and experience international pharmacy had a tremendous impact on me as a future professional.” – Kara Jastemski ’07
“The rotation in Basel helps students to grasp the scope and variety of opportunities that await ACP graduates,” says Kevin Hickey, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the Department of Arts and Sciences. “The earlier and more often this can occur, the better.”
“It was hard to believe there was a program that supplied illegal drugs, but after seeing the statistics, it seemed that the program has had positive results,” Kara says. “Sixth year offers the chance to use what you’ve learned in your classes at ACP,” she adds. “Seeing things in practice makes everything come together and really brings home how essential pharmacists are to the health care profession.”

the U.S., where there is such a demand.” Kara also spent a day at a heroin clinic to see the human side of the testing she had been doing. Addicts who agree to comply with the rules of a clinic or hospital are allowed to pick up clean heroin twice daily in Switzerland. 13
Expanding horizons through inquiry Summer research at ACP
One of several summer research students, B.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences major Shaarika Sarasija ’09 spent her summer working with faculty member Jeffrey Voigt, Ph.D., researching a tumor suppressing protein for breast cancer patients.
Every academic program at ACP is grounded in the basic fundamentals of scientific research and patient care. Expanding opportunities for students to delve deeper into both realms outside of the classroom is a key focus of the College’s strategic plan. With opportunities for faculty-mentored research in a wide variety of settings, students are exposed to myriad opportunities to put in practice what they learn in class while also gaining experience in new areas. Ten students from both the Doctor of Pharmacy and Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences programs participated in the 2006 Summer Research Internships. “Exposure to research methodology and scholarly activities are important in pharmacy and health sciences education, and to the student experience at ACP,” says Dean Mehdi Boroujerdi, Pharm.D., Ph.D. “The more opportunities our students have to be involved in research with our faculty and other experts in the field, the better they will be prepared for the increasingly complex world of health care.” Pharm.D. student Andrea Searle ’08 spent her summer working with Department of Pharmacy Practice faculty member Michael Kane ’84, Pharm.D., FCCP, BCPS, a clinical pharmacy specialist at The Endocrine Group in Albany. The work involved a study of Thiazolidinedione (TZD) in the treatment of Type-2 diabetes mellitus. “This project challenged me in more ways than I could have imagined,” says Andrea. “It allowed me to develop a database from electronic medical records, broaden my knowledge of statistical analysis and understand a wide array of patient outcomes, both immediate and long-term, affected by TZD use.
“Most importantly, it exposed me to the practice of clinical pharmacy. I spent every day surrounded by physicians and pharmacists and had the privilege of seeing patients with both.” Andrea’s research has been accepted for presentation at the American College of Clinical Pharmacy spring meeting in Memphis, Tennessee, and the American Diabetes Association 67th Scientific Sessions to be held in Chicago in June. Researching another facet of health outcomes under the guidance of Department of Pharmacy Practice faculty member Leon Cosler ’82, Ph.D., Brian Myer ’07 (B.S. Pharmaceutical Sciences) worked with the Awareness of Neutropenia in Chemotherapy Study Group led by oncologist Gary Lyman, M.D., to analyze characteristics and treatment patterns of ovarian cancer patients. Drawing data from a nationwide registry of oncology practices, Brian assessed the incidence of neutropenia, a chemotherapy toxicity that often prevents patients from receiving the optimal dose and schedule of treatment. “The most important part of the experience was seeing the impact that a physician can have on improving patient treatment,” says Brian, who plans to continue on to medical school after earning his undergraduate degree in May. “I aspire to one day make my own contribution to advancing treatment to ensure
that patients have the greatest chance for a complete recovery.” Sophomore Shaarika Sarasija ’09 (B.S. Pharmaceutical Sciences) also focused her research in the cancer arena but took a different tack. Working with human breast cancer cells, her project with Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences faculty member Jeffrey Voigt, Ph.D., investigated the ability of the tumor-suppressor protein VDUP1 (Vitamin D3-Up Regulated Protein 1) to regulate the activity of p53, a protein that affects the ability of cells to divide. “The work that Shaarika did has not been done before by anyone else and represents a novel finding that could be very important in understanding how tumor cell proliferation is regulated,” says Dr. Voigt. “She also learned a great deal about hypothesis testing and how to design an experiment that answers a specific question.” HIV was the focus of fourth-year Pharm.D. student Ramy El-kholi ’09 and Department of Pharmacy Practice faculty member Christopher Miller, Pharm.D., BCPS. They tried to determine the effectiveness of a drug regimen utilizing protease inhibitors, which block the enzyme HIV needs in order to make new viruses, in combination with the antiretroviral agents Tenofovir and Didanosine. “I had a hands-on opportunity to
learn a great deal about HIV while working at a local clinic,” says Ramy. “The project also gave me insight into how many steps go into a research project; from Institutional Review Board proposals to the preparation of manuscripts.” Jeffrey Graves ’07 (Pharm.D.) spent his summer working with Thomas Lodise, Pharm.D., to examine the effects of certain antibiotics. In one study, the pair evaluated the effect of a higher dosing schedule of vancomycin on nephrotoxicity. They also prepared for publication a manuscript on the relationship of flouroquinolone antibiotics to glucose intolerance in elderly patients.
“The more opportunities our students have to be involved in research with our faculty and other experts in the field, the better they will be prepared for the increasingly complex world of health care.” – Dean Mehdi Boroujerdi, Pharm.D., Ph.D. “Working with Dr. Lodise has allowed me to develop a thorough understanding of clinical/epidemiologic based research,” Jeffrey says. “I’ve developed skills that have given me a more definitive understanding of many concepts taught in the classroom.” Though all of the summer projects vary in their focus, one thing is consistent: Research, whether in a laboratory, clinical or community setting, is an integral and invaluable part of the undergraduate educational experience at ACP, allowing students a unique opportunity to develop the thinking skills so critical to a scientist while allowing them to see how their work will benefit patients and inform their career directions. Sciences for life.

The new Student Center, designed by Envision Architects, PC and dedicated in September 2006, is the crowning achievement in ACP's transformation this decade from a one-building commuter college to a vibrant, residential institution with an inviting, full-service campus. 30
A Capital Success President James J. Gozzo, Ph.D., reflects on ACP’s first Capital Campaign
In October 2006, ACP closed its first Capital Campaign. Kicked off with great pomp and circumstance in 2001, the $10 million goal represented a bold undertaking for the College, a challenge to everyone in the ACP community to work toward a set of common goals in our efforts to advance the institution at a critical time in our history. I am pleased to report to you that with your help we not only met our ambitious goal, we surpassed it by more than 80 percent. The $18.1 million raised during ACP’s first dedicated Capital Campaign has helped continue the institution’s transformation. We closed the final academic year of the 20th century, 1999-2000, with a one-building campus, one off-campus residence facility and about 640 total students in one academic program. Today, as we reflect on the many achievements in just a few short years, we are able to offer so much more as a result of our fundraising success and your generous gifts: • An eight-building campus, including renovations of the former Christian Brothers Academy main building to create our “June 2, 2001, the kickoff of our first Capital Campaign, marked the Classroom Building and attached Albert beginning of a new era at ACP.

Daley ’74 served as chair of the Capital Campaign and, since 2003, has served as chair of the ACP Board of Trustees. She was a driving force behind our fundraising success. We owe a debt of gratitude as well to Alfred J. Collins Jr. ’53, chair of the ACP Board of Trustees for two six-year terms, including 1997-2003 as we established this vital fundraising goal and then began our work toward it – and beyond! Al served 30 years on the Board of Trustees, was elected chairman emeritus in 2003 and continues to be an important advisor to the College. This campaign has been a great success, and we look ahead to future growth as we strive to enhance our level of excellence. 31
