Making Pharmaceuticals 2017

By Andrew Ramage

 Topics of interest to microbiologists

 

 

I attended the Making Pharmaceuticals Exhibition and Conference 2017 on 25th April as a delegate rather than exhibitor. Although of limited interest (little to do with microbiology) I thought it would be good to have a nose to see if anything would pique my interest. Our friends from Pharmig are regular exhibitors at the event. I went over to say hello and was asked very quickly to write a blog about the two talks being given by Pharmig chair David...

After Andy Whittard’s fun piece about agar in cooking, I thought I would write a more light-hearted blog for a change. I’m going to talk about my real passion in life, beer. I’ve been an active member of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) for many years. You may even have seen my ugly mug on a few volunteer’s posters if you’ve been to beer festivals run by CAMRA!
