I’d never been to a scientific conference before, and I arrived in London very unsure of what to expect. Over the course of three days I was blown away by the openness and warmth of the pharmacology world in welcoming me. As well as massively enjoying myself, I learned an enormous amount. It was fascinating to learn about research that might have a tangible impact for patients. There were fantastic opportunities for engagement and networking; both with other young pharmacologists just starting out, and with legends of pharmacology who write the textbooks I use everyday.

I am very grateful to the Society for their generous travel grant to attend the World Congress on Inflammation in Brazil this year. This conference offered me the opportunity to give an oral presentation to an international audience for the first time, which was an immensely valuable experience, both in terms of gaining confidence as a speaker, and in obtaining input and feedback from experts in inflammation and immunology.
