“Pharmacy school today is like a great highway with numerous exits that will lead you to your future career. Some of you have been traveling this road for a while, and other have only just begun. But this highway that you drive down has not always existed. It started out years ago as a dirt path with only one destination. The trailblazers who came before us cleared the way, and elevated student pharmacists and pharmacists to become the professionals they are today. Moving forward, the Academy must continue to build upon this progress, but not focus on just the individual or the community. Bringing new ideas together to realize the brilliant strength in each student pharmacist contributes to the greater good. By focusing on all aspects of life-career, community, and self-APhA-ASP members can reach as shared vision of their own future and the future of pharmacy, together.” – E. Michael Murphy 2018-18 APhA-ASP National President

To help educate and inform KGI students about the importance of research and foster a community where individuals can network, develop, and engage in research in collaboration with staff/faculty. RC will host educational events and general meetings that discuss current research opportunities and the need to be involved in research throughout graduate education.
RC will connect selected members of the organization with research opportunities that are provided within KGI. This selection process will consist of screening the research interest of students, matching each student with appropriate faculty based on the students’ research interest, and an interview with the respective faculty member. The acceptance of the student to participate in the research will be based solely on the discretion of the faculty member. RC does not guarantee that all students will be matched.
RC will provide current research opportunities for its members and the matching process will be held as an ongoing basis. Students who are selected by faculty will be held to a high level of professionalism. A contract will be signed by both student and faculty to ensure commitment and respect of all those involved. The contract will specify logistical information (number of hours, student responsibilities and expectation, etc.) in order provide effective and thorough communication for all those involved. Exchanging knowledge through research to help further our respective professions in the scientific community. RC is an organization where individuals who are passionate about research may learn, gather, and share information.

Do you like drinking beer? So, do we! This is a social club whose focus is enjoying a nice, cold brew with friends old and new. Occasional formal outings to local breweries to taste new developments and old favorites and learn about the history of these places and fermentation techniques in general. If none of that extra stuff interests you, come out just for the drinks instead. More occasional informal meetups of friends who want to get drinks. All are welcome, come on out! Some of the club leadership are also interested in starting our own batch of homebrew so if unique applications of bioprocessing and fermentation are of interest to you, let us know and we can get you involved.
