School of Pharmacy Faculty Get to Work after Northeastern Opens the Doors to a New Complex
On April 3rd, 2017, Northeastern University held a grand opening celebration for the new Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Complex (ISEC). Elected officials and guests, including Mayor Marty Walsh, US Representative Joe Kennedy, US Senators Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren, and France Córdova, Director of the National Science Foundation were in attendance for the event.
The School of Pharmacy is excited to be part of the scientific collaborations in ISEC. Diomedes Logothetis, PhD, from the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences is the first pharmacy faculty member to take up residence in the newly opened facility. In addition to his research faculty and staff, a dozen students have joined the Logothetis lab since its opening in January, including two masters students, six Pharmaceutical Sciences undergraduate students, and four PharmD Capstone students. The building has been an exciting space for student and faculty researchers alike to set up operations. Northeastern’s goal is to ensure that the impressive building produces breakthrough science that allows the institution to now excel in research and graduate programs, as it has already done for undergraduate studies. The interdisciplinary environment of the building will allow great minds will meet and push the envelope forward to solve significant scientific problems, making our institution competitive among our elite neighbors.
