At a recent event in the Department of Pharmacology, featuring DPhil and MSC students along with early career researchers, the formation of the Oxford Pharmacology Society (OPS) was announced.

The society aims to provide a platform to invite speakers and alumni in the interest of networking and career advice. At an event in November, Dr Sridhar Vasudevan talked to the group about his journey from MSc student to Principal Investigator, including details of his involvement in an academic spinout. The next event, to be held on 16 January 2019, is entitled ‘Beyond academia: The intricate world of intellectual property’ and will be presented by Dr Tanya Heare-Rowlands, a former DPhil student in the Platt lab who is now an IP lawyer. The Society is being run by Dragos Mosneagu in the Vasudevan lab, Carla Santos and Mylene Huebecker in the Platt lab and Arup Nath in the Minichiello group.
