R. Renee Reams holds a Ph.D. degree and is a Full Professor and the Chair of the Medicinal Chemistry Section, College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Florida Agricultural And Mechanical University, Fla, USA. She has been involved in prostate cancer investigations since 2004. She also serves on the State of Florida’s Health Disparity Research Advisory Committee and is a member of several prostate cancer research consortiums. As a Principal Investigator with more than fourteen years of experience serving as Program Administrator for the HRSA Centers of Excellence (COE) Program, Dr. Reams led the Faculty/Student Research Training COE Activity. This program matched year 1 through year 3 pharmacy majors (equivalent to sophomore and junior levels) with FAMU Pharmacy faculty researchers for hands-on 15-hour per week basic and clinical science research training experiences during the academic year and in the summer. A total of 67 students were matched and trained over the four-year period during this activity, where 15% of the students became coauthors on published articles, and 88% published abstracts in national state and on-campus journals. Annually, since 2007, Dr. Reams has coordinated and hosted the Annual Student Research Forum, a campus-wide scientific poster presentation event for undergraduate and graduate students at FAMU. Personally, Dr. Reams has also worked very closely with and mentored more than 24 undergraduate FAMU students in her own laboratory in the past 20 years. She has taught physiological chemistry to over 3,000 Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) students at FAMU. In addition, Dr. Reams is also a member of the FAMU graduate faculty and has trained and graduated four Ph.D. and two M.S. students in her research laboratory. With her experience in prostate cancer research and in mentoring undergraduate, graduate students, junior faculty, and research associates, Dr. Reams is poised to contribute significantly as the FAMU Faculty Academic Advisor for the DoD Collaborative Undergraduate HBCU Student Summer Training Program Award between FAMU and UF.
