College of Pharmacy Faculty showcased in UIC’s Spark Talks lecture series

Spark Talks

During the 2023-2024 academic year, Chancellor Miranda began hosting a new lecture series called Spark Talks, and the Pharmacy faculty were well-represented in its first year.

On four different days throughout the year, faculty speakers presented three-minute "lightning" talks to share their research with the University community. Check out the UIC Pharmacy faculty recordings below. To view all the UIC Spark Talks, check out the playlists on the UIC YouTube channel.
