Donald Cairns, a senior professor at Robert Gordon University (RGU), has been elected as a member of the Pharmacy Schools Council (PhSC) Executive.

Cairns, head of the School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences at RGU, said he would help the PhSC, which represents shools of pharmacy across the UK, “to deliver pharmacy education of the highest quality.”

“I believe that the pharmacists of tomorrow will have an important role to play as approachable experts in drugs, medicines and healthcare and it is important that they receive the best possible preparation,” he said.

Cairns, who was last year appointed a Fellow of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, is a member of the Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists and the British Pharmacopoeia Commission.
