Simone wins AACP New Investigator Award!

The New Investigator Award of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy supports early career faculty to gather preliminary data for major government funding. The award will support our research on fatty acid metabolism in lung cancer. Team P450 for the win!

The Brixius lab co-authored first manuscript!

In collaboration with Leading Edge Symposium Fellows, we published an opinion piece about recruiting women faculty. We describe obstacles during the application process and provide a toolkit for hiring entities to make this process more inclusive for women caregivers.
