Emeson is now a three-time winner of the award; he previously received it in 2003 and in 1995, the first year it was awarded.

Last week’s forum, held in conjunction with a reunion of trainees organized by the Office of Biomedical Research Education and Training, focused on “The Impact of Vanderbilt Pharmacology Over 80+ Years,” and included presentations by Department of Pharmacology alumni.
