From the fall of 1978 until the summer of 1982, I was a graduate student in the Laboratory of Dr. David Triggle in the Department of Biochemical Pharmacology, School of Pharmacy, State University of New York at Buffalo. This contribution permits me the opportunity to take you back in time into David's laboratory and tell you the story of how my early research career was borne and to provide a glimpse into some of the accomplishments that David, I and my fellow graduates students made. The central theme of my research was to bring together the many events that controlled the contraction of guinea-pig ileal longitudinal muscle, from the binding of muscarinic agonists, the movement of mono- and divalent cations that control depolarization to contraction itself and the differences between muscarinic and non-muscarinic mediated contraction and tachyphylaxis...

With the increase of new pharmacy colleges and schools throughout the country, the number of open clinical academic pharmacy positions continues to grow.

However, no blueprint or recommendations have yet been provided to facilitate this transition...

Procedures previously used include journal acceptance or rejection policies, impact factors, number of subscribers, citation counts, whether the articles were refereed or not, and journals cited in books within the discipline. This study built on the work of previous authors by using a novel approach to assess journal quality in social and administrative pharmacy (SAdP). OBJECTIVES: To determine U...

The opening lectures, which formerly marked the beginning of a professor's duties in an academic institution, are important documents for science historians. Several opening lectures in chemistry (organic, inorganic, analytical, biological or medicinal chemistry), which were given by French pharmacists in the Ecole or the Faculté de pharmacie de Paris, in the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris, or in the Collège de France are analyzed. First, these lectures reveal formal aspects, such as the history of the chair or a eulogy of the works and personal qualities of the predecessor...

Development of a national plan to implement a core set of clinical pharmacy services in United States hospitals by 2020 requires assertive leadership from pharmacy organizations and state boards of pharmacy, and a commitment from the profession. Factors that may affect the development are grouped into three areas: manpower, marketplace variables, and pharmacy leadership. Although the number of pharmacy school graduates (7000) was about the same in 1990 and 2000, a greater number of pharmacy schools and high student enrollment, coupled with the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education's acceptance of foreign-trained pharmacists, suggest that the number of pharmacists will increase substantially in the near future...

The catholic University of Lille and its five Faculties, including the "Faculté de médecine et de pharmacie", were grounded by catholic people of the northern France as opposed to scientism, materialism and aggressive atheism of that epoch. Philibert Vrau and his brother in law Camille Feron-Vrau, M.D. names are linked to the founding. From 1876 to 1910, that medical school passed through very difficult years due to a strong anticlerical opposition. World War I diminished the tense atmosphere and the medical school serenely expanded up to 1957...
