Irish Association of Pharmacologists Annual Meeting

November 30 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC+1

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 Society which will be held in London in December 2019.

This year's event will include keynote presentations by:

Keynote 1 - Jochen Prehn

(Professor of Physiology & Director, Centre for Systems Medicine, Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland)

Keynote 2 - Amrita Ahluwalia

(Professor of Vascular Pharmacology and Co-Director of William Harvey Research Institute, London; Chief Editor of British Journal of Pharmacology)

Keynote 3 - Danny McAuley

(Professor and Consultant in Intensive Care Medicine at the Royal Victoria Hospital and Queen's University of Belfast)

In addition, there are 8 slots for early-career researchers to make short presentations or to present a poster and prizes are awarded for best oral and poster presentations.
