Lunch and Learn at Targacept

You are invited to join the Healthcare Club on its next company visit. This is a great opportunity to visit Targacept, a firm that works on the forefront of drug discovery and resides within Winston-Salem. The club will visit Targacept on Wed., Jan. 19, for a “Lunch and Learn” tour of their facilities. 

Attendees will meet at 12:30 pm in the Worrell business lounge and return around 2:30pm. There will be a carpool from the school but it is not an issue if you would need to meet us there. 

Boxed lunches will be provided prior to the facility tour as we receive an overview of the company from Debra Perret, the company’s communications coordinator. The tour and science-focused aspects of our visit will be led by Melissa Joseph, Ph.D. of Targacept's analytical R&D group. Additionally, Targacept is the case sponsor for this year’s Biotechnology Case Competition, which makes this an excellent opportunity to get involved and learn about our sponsor. Also, this is a unique chance to see firsthand, the operations of a firm that is discussed during class.

Please reply to Justin Kistler at by Sun., Jan. 16 at 6 pm if you plan to attend. There are limited spots, so the earlier you respond, the better chance you have of reserving a spot. Feel free to visit Targacept's website for more information and an overview of the products that it is developing to target nervous system diseases and disorders (
