Myrdal Memorial Gateway Award, the Herb and Nina Demuth Memorial Award in Pharmaceutics, the Underrepresented Minority Award, and the Health Outcome Disparities Award.  

The Gateway Award supports Pharm.D. and undergraduate students who are considering a career in research, and enables them to work with a faculty mentor on that mentor’s research project. Both Pre-Doctoral fellows and Gateway awardees are carefully chosen by our highly selective Board of Grants and contribute to research that will positively impact public health and patient outcomes.

This year, many of our fellows and awardees are conducting research in oncology, neurodegenerative disease cures, addiction and pain management, and healthcare disparities. For more detailed information on the awards and fellowships AFPE offers, please click here.
