by MBJ Staff
Published: January 1,2012
After more than a decade as dean of the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy, Barbara Wells, 66, is retiring to spend more time with her family and pursue some long-delayed interests. Wells became UM’s pharmacy dean in summer 2001.
Under her leadership, the school’s facilities have been greatly improved and expanded, its curriculum has been revised, its research enterprise has nearly doubled and its programs have become more nationally and internationally prominent.
As president of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, Wells helped create the Academic Leadership Fellows Program, which recently graduated its seventh class.
