Researchers from Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS), run jointly by the universities of Brighton and Sussex, have discovered a link between a virus and damage to cardiovascular tissue.
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a very common virus similar to the herpes virus that causes cold sores and is generally considered harmless. The immune system usually controls the virus and most people don’t even realise they have it.
The work conducted under the supervision of Professor Florian Kern, Chair of Immunology at BSMS, shows that clinically relevant numbers of a specific type of immune cells only arise when infection with CMV is present. Read More →
Young people with an interest in science and engineering can learn how to turn their passion into a career at a science fair in Brighton tomorrow (11 July).
Big Bang @ Brighton will take place at the University of Brighton and organisers are promising “an exciting, colourful and noisy event” aimed at encouraging more students to pursue further studies and potential careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
Organised by STEM Sussex, the University of Brighton’s STEM outreach department, the event is funded by the Sussex Learning Network’s National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP), a four-year programme aimed at encouraging more young people, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, into higher education.
Big Bang @ Brighton will feature a range of hands-on activities, workshops and shows provided by many local companies, universities and colleges and other organisations, highlighting the STEM-related opportunities available to young people in the area. Read More →
A University of Brighton pharmacist will be at the House of Commons for the launch of a campaign on how pharmacists can help identify and support people with mental health issues.
Claire May, Principal Lecturer in Pharmacy Practice in the University’s School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences, said: “This is an extremely valuable campaign that will examine how pharmacists, as part of a multi-disciplinary approach, can help tackle the challenges facing the NHS in treating people with mental health issues.
“Over the last few years I have been extremely interested in how patients with mental health conditions are treated within the NHS so I have run several undergraduate projects looking at the perceptions and awareness of community pharmacists regarding their patients suffering from these conditions. Attending this event will help raise the profile of what community pharmacists can actually deliver to support these patients and ensure that mental health is recognised as a core part of the services provided.”
The campaign, being launched tomorrow (6 June) has been written by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.
Mrs May, who graduated from University of Brighton in 2001 and started her pharmacy career in community pharmacy, has worked as a prescribing advisor across the South East and went on to gain her own prescribing qualification in 2007.
She has worked with local Clinical Commission Groups, practicing pharmacists, Joint Programme Board and Health Education Kent Surrey Sussex and the Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education on the provision of postgraduate training for pharmacists and allied health care professionals including independent prescribing.
Lauren Redwood, 4th year Pharmacy MPharm, takes time out from her exams to share her experience of studying here.
“I absolutely loved Brighton when I visited on an open day, it stood out compared to the rest as a university that taught a forward-thinking version of a pharmacy course with an integrated, clinical approach that many other courses did not offer.

University of Brighton has awarded a sports scholarship to Millie Hemsley who is studying Pharmacy MPharm here.
“Being a sportswoman has personally helped me with keeping a healthy balance in my life between sport and education, (as it stops me trying to revise 24/7)! I am really enjoying my time at the University of Brighton so far and I am sure this will continue across the 4 years I am here.
I applied for the sports scholarship and was lucky to be awarded this for my sport (pole vault ) which I have participated in for 4 years at Lewes athletics club. During these 4 years I have achieved the necessary heights and been chosen to represent the county at the national English Schools Championships 4 years in a row against Ireland,Scotland and Wales.
This scholarship will hopefully give me the support I need to win a championship medal!”
We wish Millie the very best!!!
