Lauren A. Woods Award
The Lauren A. Woods Award is made possible by a generous gift to the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology by Dr. and Mrs. Lauren A. Woods to honor research excellence among doctoral students entering their final year. Dr. Woods was a distinguished pharmacologist who served for many years as vice president for health sciences and a member of this department at VCU. Prior to joining VCU in 1970, Dr. Woods was professor and chairman of the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Iowa.
