The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy invites the UMBC community to two special events this fall.

On Monday, Sept. 16, at 12 p.m., Shaomeng Wang will give the annual Ellis S. Grollman Lecture in the Pharmaceutical Sciences. His talk will be entitled “Targeting Protein-Protein Interactions for New Cancer Therapeutics.” Wang is the Warner-Lambert/Parke-Davis Professor in Medicine at the University of Michigan School of Medicine and a professor of medicinal chemistry at the university’s College of Pharmacy. He is co-director of the Molecular Therapeutics Program at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center and director of the university’s Cancer Drug Discovery Program. The event will take place in the Pharmacy Hall, Room N103, located at 20 N. Pine St., in Baltimore, MD. Lunch will follow in Pharmacy Hall Atrium.

On Thursday, October 17, the School of Pharmacy’s Mass Spectrometry Facility will hold an open house from noon – 5 p.m. The Mass Spectrometry Facility at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy provides state-of-the-art expertise, methodology, and instrumentation to the surrounding research community and beyond. The facility offers researchers the opportunity to perform and access very sophisticated experiments by working closely in a true collaborative effort with School of Pharmacy faculty, staff, and students. At the open house, six brief case studies will be presented, detailing how mass spectrometry solves biomedical problems. The Open House is a free event, but registration is required.
