South Carolina College of Pharmacy’s (SCCP) Bryan Love has been selected to participate in the prestigious 2015-2016 American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) Academic Research Fellows Program (ARFP).  Love is an associate professor of clinical pharmacy and outcomes sciences at the SCCP campus at the the University of South Carolina (USC).

The AACP ARFP is a year-long program designed to expand the leadership capabilities of established faculty research scientists and administrators to cultivate collaborative team research and graduate education across institutions. Specifically, participants will gain experience in research-focused leadership development, team building, and the development of innovative research strategies to secure funding from federal and other public and private sources. Participants will also gain insight into the dynamics, management, institutional structures and policies that affect research teams, and have the opportunity to network with successful research leaders and advocacy groups.

In addition to sessions in residence, fellows will design and implement projects to enhance the research programs of their home institutions. The ARFP is designed to assist midcareer research-focused faculty to take their careers to the next level by expanding their leadership capabilities, with a focus on team-based science and innovations in graduate education.  The opening session for the new program of cohorts will take place in Bethesda, Md. the week of November 16.
