Scientists are working on a portable spray-on-skin that can heal severe wounds in just a few minutes.The spray mainly contains important proteins that can reprogram the injured cells to become stem cells, and back to young uniformed skin cells. So far they were able to accelerate healing process from 12 weeks to 21 days with a similar approach.
Tbh we’re both kind of rained in with work, I mean exam season is approaching for both of us so we probably won’t be posting as often as we’d like :’(
Ermm OK I’m gonna assume your’re studying in the UK to make things easier :P I guess the first thing you wanna ask yourself is what kind of job do you want, I think the best thing about pharmacy purely as a career is that you have the freedom to give it you all and work under pressure and 120% of the time (mostly in hospital) at the same time when you want a more peaceful simple life or even part time work you can opt for community or teaching. (Maybe that’s why the female to male ratio is like 9999999:1) As long as you’re well prepared, versatile,logical, scientific and willing to learn the job market is also less harsh compared to other undergraduate degrees.
The grade requirement can vary between Universities, but if you’re aiming for Russell Group then I’d say AAB at least, they’re upping the requirement I believe and making a aptitude test similar to the medical one for pharmacists as well… I’m not complaining, this career accommodates for very little room to make mistakes.
The 2nd thing is then obviously are you interested in it? It’s an academically, emotionally and mentally demanding subject, you’ll deal with endless workload, deaths, suffering, at the same time you gotta get your stuff together (ofc things are easier in community, or if you prefer the business side of things, there’s always an easier, but maybe boring alternative). Should you choose to go into anything but research, you have to be VERY CAREFUL, there’s plenty of double checks, reading twice, confirming stuff again, because pharmacists are the safety net when it comes to medication they’re there to watch out and correct any mistakes regarding medications to their team.
Other perks would be that it’s a professional degree, therefore in the UK at least it’s your experience that matters more than your grades, so you have a little buffer with your grades it doesn’t have to be a 1st or a 2:1 to land you job.
If you have any more questions please feel free to ask.
Hope this helps
Hi there I had a look for you and it seems that betahistine mesilate has been withdrawn from the western market since I can’t find it on the medicine’s compendium most probably because it produces severe side effects or damage the foetus in a pregnant woman.
Hopefully this helps
Sooo I’ve had many people having no idea what pharmacy is and asking me what it’s about, or simply dismissing it as ‘standing behind the counter’, for for those of you still in school maybe this will help to encourage you to take a degree in it ;)
That’s all I can think of so far, if you have any more questions about the subjects or the universities in the U.K. please feel free to inbox!

You mean basic like the pH?… Or basic like to put something simply?…
I’m not one to freak out about exposure to bacteria and viruses - it’s a natural part of life and in general out bodies are pretty good at dealing with them. But I think this graphic is great for teaching us a little bit about some of the pathogenic microbes out there. Hepatitis A can survive for months! Wow!
