News & Announcements

The Centers for Disease Control confirms there are 300,000 new cases of Lyme disease diagnosed every year in the United States. In the continental US, Pennsylvania is usually ranked as being first or second in the nation with the most cases. In 2014, the State Senate unanimously passed legislation intended to execute prevention, education and surveillance strategies for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. In light of this legislation, Drexel University College of Medicine is teaming up with the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS), and the PA Lyme Resource Network (PALRN) to host a two-day conference. This conference brings together physicians and researchers to discuss current and future treatment protocols and investigational research.


With a quick tear of an envelope, 257 Drexel University College of Medicine students know officially where the next phase of their medical careers will take them. The future doctors filled the Student Activities Center on Friday, March 20, for National Match Day 2015, when fourth-year students learn where they will begin their residency programs. It is one of the most exciting days in a young doctor’s education.


The Caring Together program is turning 25. Established in 1990, the program, which is managed by the Department of Psychiatry at Drexel University College of Medicine, helps women and their children overcome substance abuse and start a new life without drugs and alcohol. 


Eighty-two posters were presented at the Fourth Annual Medical Student Research Day on March 12, 2015. Faculty volunteers judged the posters for content, presentation and appearance.


The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition (PBCC) recently awarded two Drexel University College of Medicine researchers grants from its statewide Refunds for Breast Cancer Research campaign. Alessandro Fatatis, MD, PhD, professor in the Departments of Pharmacology & Physiology and Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, and Mauricio Reginato, PhD, associate professor in the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, each received a $50,000 award for their breast cancer research.
