We founded the University College London Pharmacology Society in 2021 intending to make studying as easy as possible. We focus on presenting lecture material in a clear, structured and as easy to remember way as possible. We also created opportunities for students to improve public speaking, presentation and communication skills. Our newsletter is focused on industry insights and have resources to help a student secure a summer internship with funding.

Collaborations

- the careers day was in collaboration with the UCL SciCon society.

- The DNA replication presentation was in collaboration with the UCL Genetics society.

- we look forward to collaborating with the two as well as immunology and neuroscience societies, as our presentations relate to these fields.
