Biomedical Research & Process Partnership between MVCDS & UT
Maumee Valley Country Day School and the University of Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences have created a unique partnership that allows high school students to participate in authentic, on-going research within the HOSS program (Health Outcomes and Socioeconomic Sciences) of the Department of Pharmacy Practice. Headed by Dr. Sharrel Pinto, division head of HOSS and director of the Pharmaceutical Care and Outcomes Research (PCOR) laboratory and Brandon Slotterbeck, Maumee Valley Upper School science faculty and former research analyst within the UT College of Pharmacy, the goal of this program is to allow students to experience current, 21st century research methods inside actual working research laboratories and higher educational facilities.
