Last July, Tyler Mullen, PharmD, presented his work on the SUNY-UWI Health Research Task Force progress at the NAJASO 40th Anniversary, Convention, Banquet, and Awards Presentation. According to the convention planning team, the aim of the convention was to “continue NAJASO’s tradition as we recognize its members, business partners, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders for their outstanding leadership, professional skills, management training and volunteerism in support of the Association and its mission, goals and objectives, as well as in their respective communities.”

Mullen was awarded the first Global Health and Implementation Research Fellowship in Kingston, Jamaica through a partnership between The University at Buffalo Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences (CIGBS) and the University of the West Indies (UWI), Faculty of Medical Sciences, Mona Campus. He is working toward expanding clinical and translational research workforce development programs at UWI, specifically in the areas of diabetes, antimicrobial stewardship, and viral liver disease. This initiative at UWI will help researchers conduct studies in areas of limited resources and expand perspectives as members of the global community.
