Pharmacology Icebreaker

About the Pharmacology Icebreaker

In collaboration with Graduate Pharmacology, we are pleased to announce the Pharmacology Icebreaker. This is a new social discussion event for everyone in the Department, and is not a traditional ‘journal club’ – you are welcome to talk or discuss just about anything you want! This is a great opportunity for you to meet other trainees, postdocs, staff, and Faculty and learn about what is going on in the Department … let’s get out there and break the ice!

  • Format: 1 – 2 individuals (graduate students/postdocs/research scientists/even Faculty or groups thereof) will each take a turn and talk for 5 – 10 minutes (slides are OPTIONAL). Please note that this is not meant to be a departmental seminar!
  • Discussion Point Ideas:
    • Tell us about your project
    • Tell us about what your laboratory is investigating
    • Tell us about a methodology you are using or developing
    • Tell us about some interesting science that was featured in the news
    • Tell us about a new paper you like (journal club style)
  • Sign up to host a discussion by emailing Dr. McPherson at 

Please see below for details for the next discussion hosted by Dr. Landon Edgar entitled “Synthetic immunity through carbohydrate engineering
