Donation Enhances Pharmacy Program

Published Online: Friday, July 1, 2005

The University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy recently received a $2-million gift from Paddock Laboratories. The pharmaceutical company's donation will support the college's 2003 expansion to the Duluth campus. The funds will be used to pay for a portion of renovation of classrooms and laboratories for faculty and students. The contribution also will add to the college's commitment to broadening pharmacy services in Greater Minnesota. Currently, the state has one of the highest demands for pharmacists in the country.

The 2005 bonding bill earmarked state funding to renovate the Life Sciences Building on the Duluth campus. The College of Pharmacy will have 2 floors in the building, which will be named "Paddock Laboratories Pharmacy Education Center." Bruce Paddock, president of Paddock Laboratories, is an alumnus of the College of Pharmacy and a native of Duluth.
