We are delighted that this year’s annual meeting will take place at the Wellcome Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine.  This is a large purpose-built centre for research located on the Queen’s University campus at the Belfast City Hospital Site. Opened in 2015, the WWIEM sits adjacent to the Centre for Cancer Research & Cell Biology and, as such, the venue is the hub of health sciences research in Belfast.

The purpose of the meeting is to provide a platform for leading researchers to present their latest findings in basic and clinical pharmacology, and in therapeutics.  There will also be presentations by early-career researchers, and prizes will be awarded for best oral and poster presentations in this category. In addition, the overall winner will have the opportunity to present a talk within one of the symposia at Pharmacology 2019, the flagship meeting of the British Pharmacological Societywhich will be held in London in December 2019.
