University of the Sciences' Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry will kick off this year's Research Day events by hosting an alumna speaker on Wednesday, April 9, from 4-5 p.m., in Rosenberger Hall, room 102. The 12th Annual Research Day and 27th Annual John C. Krantz, Jr., Distinguished Lecture will be held the next day, Thursday, April 10.
 
Janet Wolfe C'85, PhD, president and founder of Wolfe Laboratories, Inc., will present "Entrepreneurialism and the Sciences" to discuss the relationship between the business and science industries. Her Massachusetts-based company is a translational drug development contract research organization that bridges discovery through early clinical studies in the pharmaceutical sciences. The University community is encouraged to attend this event, which will include a question and answer forum following Dr. Wolfe's presentation.
 
Prior to establishing her company in 1999, Dr. Wolfe was on the faculty of the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Tennessee, Memphis. She also completed her postdoctoral fellowship in the Warren G. Magnuson Clinical Center's Pharmacy Department at the National Institutes of Health.
 
This year’s Krantz Lecture will be presented by Dr. Wolfe’s husband, alumnus Dr. Michael S. Wolfe C'84. As a neurology expert at Harvard Medical School, he will present “Molecular Mechanisms of Alzheimer’s Disease and the Road to Therapeutics.”
