Pharmaceutical Science Expert Advisory Panel

The RPS Pharmaceutical Science Expert Advisory Panel (PS EAP) was created in September 2010 and is composed of 18 leading figures in science and research from academic, industrial, regulatory, hospital and community practice. The PS EAP provides strategic direction and will assess future developments in pharmaceutical science. It offers advice, horizon scanning and independent reviews on critical issues facing pharmacy that impact on patients and the public. Steve Wicks, an independent industrial pharmacist and member of the RPS Assembly Member, is the first chair of the PS EAP.

In announcing the formation of the PS EAP, Catherine Duggan, the RPS Director of Professional Development & Support, stated, “this strong expression of interest from leading scientists and researchers is an important vote of confidence for our efforts to bring science-based information and support to our members.”
