Harold H. Wolf
Professor Wolf joined the faculty in 1976 and served for 13 years as dean of the College of Pharmacy. His research interests focus on the pharmacodynamics of anticonvulsants and he is project director of the Anticonvulsant Screening Program, part of an NIH-supported, international research effort to develop new drugs for the treatment of epilepsy. He also teaches students in the health sciences about the pharmacology of drugs to control pain and about aspects of substance abuse. He has been a memorial lecturer at 11 universities and filled an appointment as a Senior Fulbright Scholar. He is the author of 200 papers and technical reports and has served in leadership positions in several national professional organizations.
He holds the Distinguished Pharmacy Educator Award of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, and his own College of Pharmacy's Distinguished Faculty Award. During his deanship, the college became recognized as one of the five leading pharmacy schools in the nation. "Dr. Wolf approaches his teaching duties the way he does everthing-with vigor, enthusiasm and a positive attitude that is infectious," observes a fellow faculty member. "Even while dean, he insisted on teaching each year."
