Dr. Mangosh received her Doctor of Pharmacy degree from The University of Findlay, and she maintains active licensure in the state of Ohio. Additionally, Dr. Mangosh received her Ph.D. in the Department of Pharmacology at Case Western Reserve University, where she worked on characterizing regulators of telomere maintenance mechanisms in castration-resistant prostate cancer. During her Ph.D. training, Dr. Mangosh also taught pharmacology to undergraduate, dental, medical and doctoral students. Upon graduation, Dr. Mangosh joined the faculty of the Department of Pharmacology at CWRU to primarily teach and develop courses and programs to meet the needs of students across the School of Medicine. Though Dr. Mangosh is a pharmacist and cancer biologist by training, she is currently focused on educational research, specifically curriculum development and reform in the graduate and medical education spaces.
