Research conducted by fourth-year Pharmaceutics graduate student, Jackson Russo, investigates alternative treatments for chronic wounds like bedsores and diabetic ulcers. After a semester of lab rotations, Russo opted to join Associate Professor Nicole Brogden's lab where he works with poloxamers and their unique properties. His interest in his current project primarily stems from the pain-relief potential of his work.

“I feel like the pharmacy field has a responsibility to address with the way the opioid crisis has developed as of late,” Jackson says. “I felt like this project would do some small thing to address that and that it would be helpful in that way.”
