Dean’s Greeting

Greetings from Northeastern! Another summer has flown by, almost as fast as a Rich Porcello fastball or a Tom Brady touchdown pass! And while Boston makes the transition from summer to fall, our students, faculty and staff at Northeastern continue to make amazing discoveries and serve our patients and communities. Please take a few moments to learn more about what we are discovering and learning at the School of Pharmacy, and all of the great people who make it happen. And while you’re at it, please drop by campus, either to see our Huskies defend their Hockey East championship, or to stop by the School of Pharmacy and say hello! We’d love to hear from you!
