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 4:00pm, in the Seminar Room, with time for tea and cake before Tea Club.

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