Q&A Vivek Agrahari


Vivek Agrahari, who defended his doctoral dissertation at UMKC’s School of Pharmacy in November, is now working as a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. Before leaving UMKC, Agrahari received two prestigious international awards: the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists-Graduate Student Research Award in Analysis and Pharmaceutical Quality and the 2015 Nicholas A. Peppas Young Student Scientists Travel Award from the Controlled Release Society to attend the CRS Annual Meeting in Edinburgh. He recently took time to talk about his accomplishments.


School of Pharmacy Part of National Kidney Study


Mark E. Patterson, assistant professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy, served as a research mentor in a national Veterans Affairs study on long-term kidney injury. The research, published in the National Kidney Foundation’s American Journal of Kidney Diseases, discovered that the use of sodium phosphate enemas, a common preparation for colonoscopies, increases the risk of long-term kidney injury. The discovery extends beyond that procedure, said Amina Khan, MD, of the Kansas City VA Medical Center.

Where is UMKC taking you?

Someplace far. I’ve had a fantastic experience here. Being in the pharmacy program is laying a great foundation for me when I do pursue residency and my career down the road.
