The University of Reading has an established reputation for research into the application of chemical, pharmaceutical and pharmacological expertise to areas of therapeutic and biological importance. There is a collaborative environment across the University. In particular, the School of Pharmacy has become integrated with the Brain Embodiment Laboratory (BEL) following a £300,000 investment to establish electrophysiology/tissue culture facilities and expand collaborations with computational neuroscientists. We have a range of fantastic research facilities, including the £4 million Chemical Analysis Facility. This provides access to a wide range of modern equipment and expertise essential for modern chemical and pharmaceutical research and our burgeoning activity at the chemistrybiology interface. Strong links with industry allow access to industrial laboratories and facilities to support your research. Many of our staff hold external appointments at various national and international research committees, which provide additional opportunities for participation in conferences and other networking events. Centre for Inter-Professional Postgraduate Education and Training (CIPPET) This Centre responds to the current and emerging needs of pharmacists and related healthcare workers. This is achieved through the provision of a taught inter-professional programme for prescribing, competency assessment, the advanced community pharmacy services of Medicines Use Review (MUR), and taught, distance or work-based learning support for Continuing Professional Development up to master's level. • An established global reputation for research in neuroscience disciplines including neurodegeneration, models of CNS disease, electrophysiology, regenerative medicine and stem cell biology, behavioural neuroscience, cell-based assay, microscopy, molecular biology, cell culture and immunohistology • Fantastic research facilities, including the £4 million Chemical Analysis Facility • Strong links with industry • Training provided in a wide range of experimental technique.
