Back in September, Carolyn Ma gave an overview of the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy at UH Hilo.

Linda Connelly received her PhD in Molecular Pharmacology at the Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research at University College London, UK. She completed an International Travelling Post-Doctoral Fellowship at UCLA and University College London. In 2009 Dr. Connelly joined the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences at UH Hilo and in 2016 she was elected to serve as the Department Chair for Pharmaceutical Sciences. Her lab, which has received funding from the Hawai`i Community Foundation and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), seeks to learn more about the biology of breast cancer and identify new drug targets for inhibiting the progression of breast cancer.
