For he's a jolly good fellow

David Wood

A consultant physician and clinical toxicologist has become the youngest Fellow of the British Pharmacological Society (BPS). At just 38-years-old, David Wood has achieved Fellowship status “for distinction and peer recognition in pharmacology”.

The BPS acts on behalf of staff working in the pharmacology field which includes laboratories, clinical environments and toxicologists and has more than 3,000 members drawn from 60 countries.

David says: “This is a huge achievement given that the Society currently has only 95 Fellows worldwide. I'm very proud to be recognised for my expertise and years of work not only in clinical toxicology and clinical pharmacology, but also my service to the BPS”.

David has worked at the Trust for 11 years and has been a consultant since 2007. He specialises in issues around recreational drugs and novel psychoactive substances ("legal highs") and acts as an expert adviser to the BPS, the UK Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs and the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction.
