An Update from the Dean

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Dean Vassilios Papadopoulos

Earlier this month we commemorated our school’s 116th Commencement. It was an extraordinary day, and a pleasure to celebrate the members of the class of 2023 as they graduated from the USC Alfred E. Mann School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Our Spring 2023 newsletter—as well as our latest issue of Results Magazine and our new 2023 Research Impact Report—helps illustrate how USC Mann opens new paths forward in clinical care, pharmaceutical science and education. We share highlights from Commencement, news about a recent National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant, and much more.

At USC Mann, our name has changed, but our mission remains steadfast: to advance health through pharmacy education, research and practice. Thank you for your support, which helps make it all possible.
