Undergraduate research win

Congratulations to Daniel Mercer, Part 3 Pharmacy student, for being one of two winners of Reading’s annual undergraduate research opportunities programme (UROP). Daniel’s project was selected from 72 projects and looked at the advanced prescribing of chemotherapy for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.

His study concluded that advanced prescribing of chemotherapy could be a feasible option for the majority of patients on this treatment which would reduce workload and reduce costs from drug wastage. The findings of the project will be presented as a poster in Westminster in March 2019 in the Posters in Parliament event which is organised by the British Conference of Undergraduate Research. The project was successfully supervised by Dr. Nilesh Patel from the pharmacy practice team and Nadjoua Maouche from Oxford University Hospitals.
