THE JPAG GEOFFREY PHILLIPS ANALYTICAL SCIENCE AWARD
Are you a PhD student, post-Doctoral Fellow or young scientist currently carrying out research on an innovative application of pharmaceutical analytical science?
If so, would you like the opportunity to win a prestigious award with a bursary of up to £1000 to attend a conference relevant to your area of interest?
Each year, the JPAG awards the Geoffrey Phillips Analytical Science Award. This Award goes to the presenter of the best short paper at a national conference on the pharmaceutical sciences held each September.
In 2013 the Award will be made at the JPAG session at the UK PharmSci Conference, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, on Monday 2nd September. For more details see: www.apsgb.org
