Overview of PIPS organisation

The ABPI exists to make the UK the best place in the world to research, develop and use new medicines. We represent companies of all sizes who invest in discovering the medicines of the future.

Our members supply cutting edge treatments that improve and save the lives of millions of people. We work in partnership with Government and the NHS so patients can get new treatments faster and the NHS can plan how much it spends on medicines. Every day, we partner with organisations in the life sciences community and beyond to transform lives across the UK.

As part of ABPI’s work to communicate on the discovery, development, regulation and manufacture of medicines, we have an award-winning Resources for Schools website, with interactive content and animations to support science teaching and learning for teachers and young people. The resources are in line with the curriculum, and many of them link topics studied in school to their application in industry and research. All our resources link science topics covered in school to the world outside and, particularly, to the treatment of disease.

Placement offered

We are seeking a PIPS student to apply their scientific and project management experience in a policy context. The output of the project will be an interactive report for publication by ABPI and a slide set which can be used in presentations which highlight the contribution the pharmaceutical industry makes to the training of young people.

The project will be supervised by Andrew Croydon, Director of Skills & Education and Examinations, ABPI.

This project will give the student an excellent overview of the biopharmaceutical sector and the interactions industry has with universities.

Contacts may be developed which could be helpful to someone considering a future career in industry.

Financial contribution/benefit(s)
Expenses will be refunded in line with ABPI standard expenses policy. Travel expenses for commuting into London (if applicable) will be paid.
