PhD Student Awarded Yerex Graduate Fellowship

Congratulations to Chris Thornburg, one of our pharmacy PhD students working with Kerry McPhail, on his receipt of the P.F. & Nellie Buck Yerex Graduate Fellowship.

This is a very significant honor–only one awardee is chosen each year from across the entire university–and the Yerex is one of only two university-wide graduate student awards given solely on meritorious achievement in the graduate programs.

This is the second Yerex award garnered by a PhD student in Pharmacy in the past few years, Brian Sloat having won a few years ago.
