Case Studies series

This term also sees the start of our Case Studies series. The aim of this series is to set pharmacology in its wider context, through talks by people who use pharmacology in their work, such as pharmaceutical companies, consultants, government agencies and charities.

These talks are on Friday afternoons at 2:30pm, in the Lecture Theatre, with time for tea and cake before Tea Club. The schedule is below.

Case Studies and Tea Clubs are important parts of the course. We expect all Part II students to attend all of these talks.
