Message from the Dean

The month of April and first day of May certainly gave us plenty of things to celebrate in the college. Between April 28 and May 1, nearly 400 of our students joined the alumni ranks at the various commencement ceremonies. At our Pharm.D. commencement we had the pleasure of celebrating the awarding of a University Distinguished Alumnus Award, presented to Dr. Robert Crisafi, a 1956 Ph.D. graduate. And as if the joy surrounding commencement ceremonies wasn’t enough to celebrate — we also received astonishing news that Dr. Bob and his wife, Barbara, are committing a $1 million gift to the college, which will allow the Crisafi Challenge to continue in perpetuity.

There were many other causes for celebration in the month. While commencement brings to a close the time our students spend with us, the White Coat Ceremony is in some ways the formal initiation of our first-year class into the profession. Watching the middle section of the Phillips Center turn white as our students received their coats is something that is a special treat for those of us sitting on stage. There were also many other awards to celebrate, including the awards given to our graduating seniors and the fact that once again the UF College of Pharmacy was No. 1 in the nation for placement of students into residency for PGY1s and PGY2s. This is a testament to our exceptional students and the strong education our faculty and preceptors provide to them. Numerous others in the college also had noteworthy accomplishments, including two university level awards, one to Dr. Almut Winterstein, who was selected as one of five faculty members across campus for the Graduate Faculty Mentor Award and her appointment as a UF Research Foundation Professor, and Joe Nicholson, who won a university-level superior accomplishment award. Two of our newest faculty members, Drs. Josh Brown and Jenny Wei were appointed as Pepper Scholars in the Institute on Aging, and our research trainees continue to shine at national and international scientific conferences. The Gator Pharmily continues to make its mark in many different ways, and I hope you will read the details of these and other stories below.

Here’s wishing everyone a bit of time to breathe and recharge after an extraordinary academic year.

For the Gator Good,


Julie Johnson, Pharm.D. Dean & Distinguished Professor
