The Dr. Mo Jamali Graduate Fellowship in Pharmaceutical Sciences

Since his arrival at our faculty in 1981, Dr. Fakhreddin "Mo" Jamali has shown incredible dedication to both his career and his industry, contributing to bettering the lives of others through his research, advocacy, and years of teaching students. After 37 years of service to the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Alberta, our dedicated friend and colleague, is retiring. 

It is our pleasure to honour him and his work by raising funds to create a graduate fellowship in his name. You are invited to join us in honouring his contributions to pharmacy and ensuring that his legacy, and our gratitude, can be felt for years to come by making a donation to the Dr. Mo Jamali Graduate Fellowship in Pharmaceutical Sciences. Your gifts will contribute to this endowed student fellowship and will allow students to undertake their research in our faculty for years to come.
