It is with great sadness that I inform you that Dr. Charles D. Hufford, Associate Dean Emeritus for Research and Graduate Programs and Professor Emeritus of Pharmacognosy at the University of Mississippi, passed away suddenly on May 15. Charlie was a pillar of the School of Pharmacy, a mentor to many and a friend to all. Charlie served in many leadership positions of the American Society of Pharmacognosy, including President. He contributed immensely to the disciplines of pharmacy and pharmacognosy, and he will be greatly missed. Please hold Charlie’s wife, Alice Clark, and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Monday, May 1st, 2017
 
Thanks to everyone who submitted an abstract by April 30. We received many quality abstracts, but to enhance our overall program, we can still accommodate more abstracts, especially for poster presentations. Because of this, and because there was heavy traffic at the website on Sunday that caused problems for some people, the deadline has been extended to 11:59 pm PDT, Monday, May 8.

March for Science

Friday, April 14th, 2017

As President of the ASP, I encourage every scientist to go forth and get vocal in support of science! Our Facebook site is posting articles about the March for Science happening all over the country and across the globe on April 22, and you can learn more about it and how to participate locally if you choose at www.MarchforScience.com. If that’s not your thing, talk to your family, friends, neighbors and community about the value of science for you and for them in their daily lives. Put a face – your face – on science, to create a connection that rises above the acronyms and jargon we often use. Help them to understand the importance of science for health, food, technology, the environment – whatever aspect you have a passion for. And when you do, snap a photo and share it with us** so we can post it to our Facebook page to shout that we are champions of science and are not about to fade away!

**ways to share photos:
1) post on our FB page    ASP Facebook Page
2) post on Twitter and tag us (@pharmacognosy.us)
3 post on Instagram and tag us (@pharmacognosy.us)
4) email directly to aspharmacognosy@gmail.com and we’ll re-post on our social media.
