Pharmaceutical medicine is one of the fastest-growing medical specialities in the UK, with ten times more doctors working in this speciality than fifty years ago.

Globally, there are more than 7,000 new medicines in the development pipeline. Ensuring each one is developed and prescribed correctly takes a huge research effort, working across different national regulatory authorities and company environments.

In this 10 minute presentation, Dr Flic Gabbay, one of the pioneers of the field, talks us through the changes she has seen through her career, as doctors learn ever more about how to take medical knowledge and use this to improve the development of drugs and medicines.

Flic gave this presentation as part of The Academy of Medical Sciences New Fellow's Admissions Day 2021, held virtually in July 2021.

The Academy of Medical Sciences are the independent body in the UK representing the diversity of medical science. Their mission is to advance biomedical and health research and its translation into benefits for society.
