An expert panel of Pharmacists from AbbVie, BioInnovate, Eli Lilly, Gilead, HPRA, J&J Ethicon and Solvotrin presented on career opportunities for pharmacists in industry. The expert panel shared insights into how the panel made their career choices, outlined their day to day job, and gave career planning advice.  A networking session with the panel and other industry based pharmacists was held afterwards. 

The School of Pharmacy would like to acknowledge the support of PIER ( the UCC PharmSoc ( in organising these two events.
