Professor elected Fellow of British Pharmacological Society

Professor Peter Redfern, Acting Director of the School for Health, has been elected to a Fellowship of the British Pharmacological Society, the UK’s primary learned society concerned with research into drugs and the way they work.

His election comes in recognition of his ‘commitment and distinction in Pharmacology through scholarship and service to the Society’.

Professor Redfern joined the University of Bath as a lecturer in pharmacology in 1968. Over the last 37 years he has divided his time between teaching, research and management.

In 2003 he became Deputy Director (currently Acting Director) of the University's new School for Health after a position as Head of the Department of Pharmacy and Pharmacology,.

He has a particular interest in e-learning and the use of new technologies in teaching and learning and in 1992 was co-founder of the Pharmacy Consortium for Computer Aided Learning (PCCAL), widely recognised as the leading provider of CAL and web-based learning materials in the pharmaceutical sciences.

His research interests in chronobiology, psychopharmcology and neuropharmacology have resulted in publication of over 200 refereed papers, reviews and books.

“I would like to join colleagues in congratulating Peter on his election as Fellow of the British Pharmacological Society and thank him for his continued efforts in promoting the excellence of the University,” said Vice-Chancellor Professor Glynis Breakwell.

Professor Redfern is a member of the UK Academy of Learning and Teaching, International Society for Chronobiology, European Society for Chronobiology, British Association for Psychopharmacology, UK Psychiatric Pharmacy Group and the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. He is a Fellow of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain and a Fellow of the British Pharmacological Society.
