This year we had three pharmacy undergraduates who successfully completed the research opportunity programme at Reading. We are especially pleased to announce that Pharmacy’s own undergraduate student, Bilal Mohammed was the recipient of the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Programme (UROP) prize for the Health research theme 2019.
Bilal was named as one of two overall winners awarded the opportunity to present their work at Posters in Parliament in Spring 2020. Bilal’s project was supported by an EPSRC Vacation Bursary awarded by the University of Reading. The project was supervised by Professors Rachel McCrindle and Simon Sherratt (Biomedical Engineering) and Professor Parastou Donyai (Pharmacy) and examined technologies to support medication reuse. Many congratulations to Bilal and the project team.
