Students recognised by leading pharmaceutical companies

Graduates from our Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology were last week recognised by the pharma industry for their achievements throughout the course of their studies. In total, 25 prizes were awarded to undergraduates from leading pharmaceutical companies. Prizes were awarded for best overall performance and practice throughout their degree courses.

To find out more, including photos of students awarded prizes at last week’s graduation ceremony, see the Pharmacy & Pharmacology Prizes blog.

Commenting on the prizes, Dr Philip Rogers, the Director of Studies for the undergraduate programmes within Pharmacy & Pharmacology, said: “These 25 prizes are very important to the Department. Not only do they help to reinforce the relevance of the different aspects within our degree programmes, but we are delighted that so many Community Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Industry companies wish to be associated with our Department. These prizes are testament to our leading place in UK Pharmacy and Pharmacology education. The hard work and dedication of the prize-winners is to their credit, and the staff congratulate them all warmly.”

Student prize-winners included Georgina Anderson (Best Student in Pharmacology) who commented:  “I am really pleased to have won the UCB-Celltech, RenaSci, and GSK prizes and I look forward to starting a PhD with a particular interest in cancer or immunology.”

Glen Cooper, winner of two prizes, including the prestigious RPharmS prize, added: "I am delighted to be the first recipient of a prize in memory of the first Vice-Chancellor, Professor George Moore, who was on the staff in this School of Pharmacy. I am grateful to his family for their generosity.”

Vei Lee, winner of four prizes, said: “These prizes will kick-start my career in pharmacy as a Pre-registration pharmacist in a Malaysian Hospital and I have high hopes to become a Superintendent Pharmacist at a multinational company. This is a great start to my career!”

Cheok Chang, winner of five prizes, said: “I am stunned that I have won these five top prizes. It is very generous of the sponsors and I am really looking forward to my career in pharmacy, having had such a great start with my education at the world-famous University of Bath.”
