"Across the broad spectrum of its activities, APS provides a unique hub for pharmaceutical scientists in the UK to connect, learn and contribute. The award of a prestigious APS Fellowship is wonderful recognition for any pharmaceutical scientist, while providing an independent and rigorous endorsement by the UK’s pharmaceutical science community for the awardee’s contribution to the field. It is a great honour to be a recipient. I hope that, through my continued involvement with the APS Nanomedicine Focus Group, I am able to give back to the community by furthering scientific knowledge, shaping policy and promoting careers"
