The Department of Pharmacology is recognised as one of the leading departments in the field in the world. To take advantage of increased opportunities in biology and of novel technologies the Head of Department has established a Strategic Advisory Board whose role will be to provide vision and advice for research and teaching, and for interacting across the University and with the public.

Professor Emeritus A David Smith FMedSci (former holder of the Chair for 21 years) has agreed to chair the new Board and he will invite a number of external experts to join the Board. David looks forward to meeting each member of staff in person to hear about the opportunities in their research, to discuss their future plans and to receive suggestions.
