An alumnus of UW’s Department of Medicinal Chemistry, Michael L. Adams, has been named the next dean of Campbell’s College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences, effective Jan. 1, 2015.
“We are thrilled to see another of our alumni receive recognition for their leadership and commitment to pharmacy and health sciences,” commented UW School of Pharmacy Dean Thomas Baillie. “We wish Michael the very best as he assumes this new role.”
As dean of the College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences, Adams will be responsible for the oversight and administration of Campbell’s School of Pharmacy, Physician Assistant Program, Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, Nursing, Clinical Research, and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
In addition to academic and administrative accomplishments, Adams has been named Professor of the Year by second-year pharmacy students every year since he joined the faculty.
A 1996 Doctor of Pharmacy summa cum laude graduate of Campbell, Adams studied under Dr. Sid Nelson, completing his Doctor of Philosophy in Medicinal Chemistry in 2003 from the University of Washington School of Pharmacy in Seattle, Washington. He then went on to complete a post-doctoral fellowship with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. He has been a registered pharmacist in North Carolina since 1996.
“I remember making the decision to apply to Campbell when I was a senior in high school, and I knew that decision would have a significant impact on my life,” said Adams. “Now I have been given the opportunity to give back and make an impact on the future of my alma mater. It’s truly a humbling experience.”
We wish Michael the very best in his new position as Dean.
