We are pleased to announce the second annual Pharmacology Matters  Writing Competition is now open!

This competition is for early career pharmacologists.* We’re looking for informative, entertaining and thoughtful articles on any pharmacology-related topic. For example, education, policy, drug development, basic pharmacology, clinical pharmacology or toxicology. Or whatever you think would be an interesting topic! Last year’s winner was Josh Dignam, with Of Fangs and Pharmacology: A Deadly Cure for Heart Disease.

The winning article will be published in Pharmacology Matters  magazine. The winner will also receive a year’s complimentary membership to the British Pharmacological Society.

Articles should be no longer than 1000 words and aimed at the general public. Feel free to include images and figures. Any references should be added as hyperlinks in the text.

The closing date is Tuesday 12 May 2020. Please send your entry as a Word document to Kat Sole/Emma Needham.
*Early career pharmacologist means:
  • Clinical pharmacologists: Registrars in Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics (usually ST3s and above) registered for Higher Medical Training in the UK and the Republic of Ireland and those in comparable training schemes (including PhD schemes) elsewhere.
  • Basic pharmacologists: No more than 7 years post PhD award, excluding career breaks.
