Felicity GavinsFelicity N.E. Gavins, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Molecular and Cellular Physiology, has been named deputy chair of the British Pharmacological Society’s International Advisory Group.

British Pharmacological Society is a London-based charity that works to promote and advance pharmacology in all forms, leading the way in research and pharmacology application around the world. The society has more than 3,500 members, representing scientists from more than 60 countries.

“A large number of non-UK members volunteered to participate in a new International Advisory Group, as part of the Society’s commitment to meeting the needs of members regardless of geography,” said David Webb, president of the British Pharmacological Society, in a news release. “I’m pleased to announce the group’s membership for its initial three-year term, led by Chair Patrick Sexton and Deputy Chair Felicity Gavins. I look forward to updating members on this development in the future.”

The International Advisory Group was established to represent the interests and views of international members, and to provide two-way communication between those members and the BPS council & committees.

“I am very excited about this new opportunity as it will help unite pharmacologists worldwide. I encourage anyone at LSU Health to become a member of the British Pharmacological Society, which works actively with our fellow societies here in the USA. They have a number of awards and funding schemes which would enable national and international travel,” said Gavins, who serves as Director of the Small Animal Research Facility.
