Meeting of Irish Association of Pharmacologists

IAPThe Irish Association of Pharmacologists meeting is a one-day event representing a wide array of laboratory-based and clinical disciplines. Full details of the programme are available at

This live educational event counts for 5 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits.

The meeting will take place on Friday 30 November 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.

WWIEM sits adjacent to the Centre for Cancer Research & Cell Biology and, as such, the venue is right in the hub of health sciences research in Belfast.

The purpose of the meeting is to provide a platform for presentation of state-of-the-art lectures in areas considered of great relevance to healthcare.  Join us for a fantastic programme.  Highlights will include keynote presentations from:

  • Jochen Prehn (Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland) on nerve cell death
  • Amrita Ahluwalia (William Harvey Research Institute, London) on sodium nitrite and cardioprotection
  • Danny McAuley (Royal Victoria Hospital and Queen’s University of Belfast) on acute respiratory distress syndrome

Delegates can enjoy these talks and also abstract presentations, plus networking opportunities.

There are prizes available for early career researchers giving oral or poster presentations and the overall winner will be given the opportunity to present a talk within a symposium at Pharmacology 2019, the flagship meeting of the British Pharmacological Society held in December in London.  Late-breaking abstracts for poster presentation will be accepted until 22 November.
