RPS chief scientist, Jayne Lawrence, has been recognised by the ABPI for her contribution to the pharmaceutical sciences 

Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) chief scientist Jayne Lawrence has been nominated by the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) as one of ten women to have “helped pioneer developments and inspire future generations of women to get involved in the pharmacy industry”.

The nomination was part of the ABPI’s International Women’s Day celebrations on 8 March 2016 and puts Lawrence alongside four Nobel Prize winners, including Dorothy Hodgkin, who won the Nobel prize for chemistry in 1964 for her work on penicillin and vitamin B12. Also honoured in the top ten were Rosalind Franklin, whose work led to the discovery of the DNA double helix, and the RPS’s first female president, Jean Kennedy Irvine.

In addition to her role at the RPS, Lawrence is professor of biophysical pharmaceutics at Kings College London and head of the university’s pharmaceutical biophysics group. She is also the vice chair of the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
