Dr. Henry Mann Dr. Henry Mann begins his tenure as dean of The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy, taking over the responsibilities of Dr. Robert Brueggemeier, who served as dean for the past 10 years.

Dean Mann joins Ohio State after serving as dean of the University of Toronto’s Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy. As dean, Mann helped to establish the first English-language entry to practice PharmD program in Canada, implemented a combined B.S. in pharmacy and PharmD program, and strengthened ties with local hospitals and community settings.

Before his time at the University of Toronto, Mann served as professor and associate dean for clinical affairs at the University of Minnesota, where he helped establish The Center for Excellence in Critical Care, a partnership with hospitals in the state of Minnesota committed to the advancement of critical care.

As director of the center, Mann oversaw partnerships with the Academic Health Center of the University of Minnesota, University of Minnesota Medical Center-Fairview, Regions Hospital, the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and research facilities to place faculty and train postgraduate students in critical care clinical and research settings.

Mann’s research has focused on the application of pharmacology and pharmacotherapy principles to treat critically ill patients. His research contributions led the American College of Critical Care Medicine (FCCM), the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (FCCP) and the American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists (FASHP) to elect him a fellow.

Mann is a graduate of the University of Kentucky, where he earned a B.S. in pharmacy in 1976 and a PharmD in 1980. He also completed a three-year residency program with the University of Kentucky Medical Center.

The College of Pharmacy’s students, faculty and staff welcome Mann and look forward to his leadership.
