The subject of this week's Take 5 on the Auburn University homepage is Warren Smith, a second-year pharmacy student in the Harrison School of Pharmacy. A native of Tallassee, Alabama, Smith leads a normal pharmacy-student life for the most part. He goes to class, visits patients and meets with his study groups. When Smith is not working on his pharmacy coursework, he can be found upstairs in the research labs working under Dr. Vishnu Suppiramaniam.
