The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy held its 13th annual Research Day on Thursday, March 29, 2018, at the Drake Union to celebrate innovative research in the college.

Research Day provides faculty, staff and students the opportunity to present their research projects and findings and network with other potential collaborators. A poster competition takes place throughout the day where students have the opportunity to win cash prizes for their research projects.

After the poster presentation, Lang Li, PhD, Chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine gave the keynote address titled, "Translational Pharmacoinformatics Approaches in the Drug Interaction Research".


Li developed an international reputation for his use of biomedical informatics and systems pharmacology to evaluate drug efficacies and adverse drug events. He and his team have successfully discovered and validated epidemiological and pharmacological data for drug interactions by using various large-scale biomedical data sources. His translational research has been funded by awards from the National Institutes of Health and the National Sciences Foundation. He is an author of over 175 manuscripts, and an investigator, co-investigator or mentor on 12 research awards totaling in more than $2 million a year in funding.

After Li’s presentation, Dr. Cynthia Carnes, senior associate dean for research and graduate education, presented the awards to the top-scored presenters.

“Research Day is a great way to see the breadth and depth of work happening across the college. Participants receive great value out of the interactions during the poster presentations. I received numerous comments on the high-quality of the presentations and the impressive work that is happening here,” said Dr. Carnes.
