College of Pharmacy’s Yan Li Earns Top Honors at the 32nd Annual Research Showcase

yan li smallThe Department of Pharmaceutical Outcomes & Policy is proud to announce that Yan Li was the winner of the 2019 poster competition in the category of “Pain, Addiction, and CNS Disorders”, sponsored by Dr. David Wallace, ’91.

The research project he presented was titled: Risk of Opioid Overdose Associated with Concomitant Use of Opioids and Muscle Relaxants.  This is Yan’s fourth and last time attending the research showcase as he will graduate this May. He had an impressive track record in presenting his research at this event, by winning both the oral (2018) and poster (2019) competitions, and was a finalist of the oral competition in 2016.  One thing he enjoys the most about the showcase day is the opportunity to catch up with fellow students from other departments, as they work in different buildings or even different campuses and don’t see each other often on a day to day basis.

Li was among UF College of Pharmacy graduate students who competed in three divisions of the oral competition at the Research Showcase. The annual event is in its fourth decade of celebrating discovery, collaboration and community at the UF College of Pharmacy this year.  Pharm.D. students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows had the opportunity to share research findings and compete for awards in either oral or poster competitions. The showcase gave faculty and students the opportunity to come together, identify common ideas and explore collaborations.
