COS Research Day 2010

A few of the many College of Science
Research Day poster presenters from 2010

The 6th annual College of Science Research Day was held Friday, April 30th, 2010 at Cleveland State University's Fenn Tower and Woodling Gym.

Research Day is an opportunity for College of Science students and faculty to present and share posters of their current research, teaching and service accomplishments. They represent the strong commitment of our faculty and students to scholarship. Each year the posters demonstrate a wide range of exploration, from basic science to direct health care, from mathematical modeling to research on educational strategies. The work reflects not only the scholarly interests of individuals, but the close relationship between scholarly and educational endeavors.

Research Day features a keynote presentation by a scientist, researcher, or academician in one of the College of Science disciplines. Also, as recognition of the research and scholarly accomplishments of our faculty, COS faculty members, nominated by their colleagues, will be presented with the 2010 Outstanding Research Award. This year's keynote speaker was Dr. Giovanni Pauletti.

Giovanni M. Pauletti, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Biopharmaceutics & Pharmacokinetics at the James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy, University of Cincinnati, where he directs a research program in molecular pharmaceutics focusing on rational design, fabrication, and evaluation of innovative, non-viral nanocarriers as vectors for targeted drug delivery applications Dr. Pauletti has published more than 100 scientific papers and research abstracts, and contributed to one GenBank entry. Dr. Pauletti served on more than 35 MS/PhD committees supporting graduate education in the College of Pharmacy, Medicine, and Engineering. He is an inventor on 11 U.S. patents/patent applications protecting various drug delivery technologies. Dr. Pauletti is an Editorial Board Member of the European Journal of Pharmaceutics & Biopharmaceutics and serves on several Leadership Committees of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS).
