Classes at KU Going Online
In an effort to protect the health and well-being of the KU community, all classes for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester are being held online due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This includes classes for all Pharmacology and Toxicology graduate students as well as students in the Pharmacy Pharm.D. program. All students have been instructed to stay at home. Classes began online Monday, March 23, and they are going very well. Only minimal, essential laboratory research is being conducted during this time.
