April 7, 2014 - Dr. Al-Mehdi Receives Pharmacology Travel Award

Al-Mehdi%2002%20web.jpgDr. Abu-Bakr Al-Mehdi, associate professor of pharmacology at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine, was recently awarded the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET) Pharmacology Educator Travel Award.

Recipients of this award are provided with many opportunities, such as active participation and networking opportunities within ASPET, as well as the opportunity to learn directly from other experts in pharmacology education. “This award will enable me to demonstrate to my peers the clinical and pathophysiological contextualization and connections approach that I have developed for pharmacology instruction,” said Dr. Al-Mehdi.

The travel award will be used to attend the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology and ASPET meeting in San Diego, Calif., on April 29, 2014, to present his education-related abstract.

“Because I am heavily involved in medical pharmacology instruction at the USA College of Medicine, my goal is to advance pharmacology instruction to higher levels,” said Dr. Al-Mehdi. “Recognition of efforts by a national organization is a great encouragement for me to continue to improve pharmacology instruction in our new, organ systems-based curriculum.”
