Pharmacology: Pharmacology Insights Through Live & Interactive Drug Discovery With Dr Rosemary Norton & Dr Leanne Stokes From University of East Anglia

18th May 2022 @ 15:35 - 16:35



What will you discover about medicines? Join us to carry out your own research experiment and decide which drug candidate to take forward for further study.

This session will include an exploration into the field of pharmacology, understanding how medicines work in the body, how new targets are identified and new drugs discovered, along with guidance on degree and career opportunities in this field.

We aim to livestream an adaptable lab simulation which will be guided by real time audience drug decision making based on the evidence emerging from the live experiment.
