Highlights from the BPS Winter Meeting, December 2011

The BPS holds its Winter Meeting every year in December. It's an opportunity for scientists at work in drug discovery and development (pharmacologists), and those who study the effects of drugs in man (clinical pharmacologists) to come together and discuss new therapies, breakthrough science, and collaborative activities in support of the global medicines research. This highlights reel gives you a glimpse into what goes on at the BPS Winter Meeting. Meet our members, officers, delegates and exhibitors at the UK's premier pharmacology conference.
