Student Contribution to Pharmacology

The Education & Training Committee has constituted a number of university-based prizes that will enable universities offering medicine or undergraduate bioscience degrees, containing substantial amounts of pharmacology, to recognize the efforts of the final year student who has contributed most to the discipline of pharmacology.

The type of contribution might include involvement in a student Pharmacology Society or volunteering at outreach or open day events. The Society is dependent on members who are enthusiastic about their discipline and are willing to contribute to the activities of the Society. These prizes will recognize such altruistic tendencies in our student members. 

The deadline for submiting the nomination form is 1 May  2017.

Please contact the Education team for  or if you have any further questions.
