Excellent news this week for our 3rd year graduate student Asinamai Ndai, who was selected as one of three winners of the Alec Courtelis Award, which recognizes the top international PhD students across all of UF. This is a highly competitive award, and I believe Asinamai may be only the second winner ever from the College of Pharmacy. Congratulations, Asinamai!

Several of us, including Asinamai’s other advisor, Dr. Rachel Reise, and Motomori Lewis, had a lovely evening celebrating Asinamai and all the other award winners at the International Student Achievement Awards ceremony, hosted at the Touchdown Terrace at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. And, I was fortunate enough to have the honor to talk about Asinamai’s many accomplishments and present him with his award.

Here are some pictures from the evening:
