Dr Benjamin Young MPharm MRPharmS
Ben obtained his Pharmacy Degree with Starred First Class Honours from the University of East Anglia in Norwich, before registering as a Pharmacist with the General Pharmaceutical Council in 2009. He went on to gain a PhD in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Bath in 2013 under the supervision of Dr Ian Eggleston, which was followed by a nine-month Postdoctoral Research Position at the University. Ben worked at St George’s Hospital in London as an Aseptic Services Pharmacist before returning to the South West to join the R&D team at Bath ASU in October 2014.
