Message from the Dean

2017 is well underway and students and faculty have settled into the spring semester. January began by honoring several high performing faculty. The first is Dr. Rob Huigens, our newest Teacher of the Year. Dr. Huigens' enthusiasm and creative approaches to teaching have earned him a well-deserved recognition, and I encourage all the faculty to chat with Rob about some of the interesting approaches he is taking in the classroom. We also honored four faculty members with appointments to UF Term Professorships. The UF Term Professors is a new program, sponsored by the Office of the Provost, to reward and recognize faculty who are helping make our institution pre-eminent, and they were doing so before the Preeminence initiative. Congratulations to Drs. Rhonda Cooper-DeHoff, Jason Frazier, Guenther Hochhaus and Chuck Peloquin for their long-standing, excellent contributions.

The college is also pleased to be part of some exciting programs. The Precision Medicine Conference, sponsored by the college, will host its second annual conference in Orlando in March. We are also very excited to be part of the new multidisciplinary Summer Health Professions Program, where we will work collaboratively with all the other colleges in the Health Science Center to provide an exciting summer program for minority undergraduate students interested in the health professions. A highly competitive grant to support this program was awarded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and we look forward to sharing all the exciting opportunities in pharmacy with these bright young people.

Please also check out the other news and activities in the college.

For the Gator Good,


Julie Johnson, Pharm.D. Dean & Distinguished Professor
