Why did you choose a career in pharmacy education?

Research is my passion and my research interest stems from multiple areas. Currently, I am working on non-patient research that focuses on evaluating the compatibility of various antibiotics for simulated Y administration and development of a drug delivery system to deliver Xanthohumol to adipose tissues.
