Tuesday March 20th saw the culmination of the 2018 Young Pharmas course. Students from Hills Road, Long Road and Netherhall 6th form colleges completed 2 evenings of hands on experiments, followed by a 1-day masterclass where they were really able to get to grip with drug-receptor aspects of pharmacology. On the final evening this week, students had to present a poster on some aspect of their work and this year’s winner was Harry Hurst from Long Road - congratulations! Before presentation of the poster prize, students, parents and staff were given an exciting talk by Dr Amy Milton from the Dept. of Psychology about the science of drug addiction, a talk that sparked a lot of questions from the audience.
