COLLEGE OF PHARMACY NEWS [BACK TO NEWS INDEX]
News release (July 9, 2012)
Manchester unveils its College of Pharmacy
with July 25 open house on new Fort Wayne campus
Ningning Yang carefully placed the mortars and pestles and pharmacology instruments on the long shining-new tables. “This is the nicest laboratory I have ever worked in,” said the assistant professor of pharmaceutical sciences, who can’t wait to greet Manchester University’s first pharmacy students on Aug. 13.
Yang and her colleagues have been preparing for Manchester’s new College of Pharmacy and its four-year Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) students since last fall – developing courses, serving on academic committees and ordering laboratory supplies.
The public is invited to check out the laboratories and the rest of the College of Pharmacy at an open house from 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 25.
The new 82,000-square-foot home for the College of Pharmacy at the corner of Dupont and Diebold roads is just east of the Interstate 69 exit, with easy access to health care facilities and pharmacies throughout northeast Indiana.
In addition to classrooms, offices, spectacular spaces and a large new conference center for Fort Wayne, visitors will see:
- technologically “smart” classrooms large enough for all 70 students in each incoming class to study together and swivel around to meet in small groups
- pharmacy care laboratory
- pharmacy communications laboratory with video-equipped rooms for students to practice interviews and interactions with patients
- sterile products laboratory
- Drug Information Center for quick response to drug-related, patient-specific and other pharmaceutical questions
- study areas that invite faculty-student collaborations
Reservations are not necessary for the open house. For more about Manchester University’s College of Pharmacy, visit www.manchester.edu/pharmacy or call 260-470-2700.
