This past year, as we continued to navigate teaching and learning amidst a global pandemic our faculty, pharmacist educators, staff, and students adapted to what seemed like constant change with tremendous grace and resilience. Our students started new clubs, provided patient care in challenging health care environments, and advanced their research. Our faculty and staff navigated technology and supported our learners and each other in the classrooms, labs, and practice sites. As I look back at the numerous achievements, many of which are highlighted in this report, I feel a deep sense of pride. Our accomplishments over the last year showcase the important roles we play in advancing the health and science.

Through an independent research program at U of T, Jack teamed up with fourth year Computer Sciences student Aman Sisodia to create a custom, low-cost solution to his research problem. Using automation, the duo found a way to translate hours of manual analysis into real-time results.
