was held the evening before on the 6th September in the ‘Whisky Mist’ bar, Hilton Hotel (sponsored by AstraZeneca). It was a pleasant evening with members awarded for their significant contributions to the field of pharmaceutical science. Professor Martin Snowden (University of Greenwich), Jo Craig, and Professor Gavin Halbert (University of Strathclyde) were all awarded the Eminent Fellowship award of The Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Great Britain. A service medal was also awarded to Dr. John Wahlich for his outstanding contributions pharmaceutical sciences, at the national and international level.
The conference, held on the 7th September, drew in a board range of professions from clinical to academic researchers and students, with a turnout of more than 100 people of which 60 people presented posters on their research.

Professor Martin Snowden (University of Greenwich), Jo Craig, and Professor Gavin Halbert (University of Strathclyde) (pictured left to right) were all awarded the Eminent Fellowship award 2018. A service medal was also awarded to Dr. John Wahlich (pictured with medal) for his outstanding contributions pharmaceutical sciences working with the APS.
The posters showcased the excellent research which is underway in the pharmaceutical sciences, ranging from nanomedicines (including polymers, liposomes and niosomes), implants to processing and formulation design. Delegates enjoyed socialising with one another over lunch and during this session could network and discuss their research with others.
Three posters were selected for prizes sponsored by the Pharmaceutics Journal based on the quality of the science and clarity of the displays
First prize: “Scale- independent manufacture of liposomal vaccine adjuvants”. Carla Belen Roces- Rodrigues (University of Strathclyde).
Joint Second prize: “Development of implants for prolonged drug delivery”. Sarah Stewart (Queen’s University Belfast).
Joint Second prize: “Physicochemical characterisation of spray dried ternary solid dispersions of simvastatin. Processability, tableting and dissolution”. Hanan Abdalmaula (University of Bradford).
