During the tour, the group got to visit both the production facility and QC laboratories. This enabled the students to relate the theory learned in class to real-world applications.
Over the past number of years, the School of Chemical & Pharmaceutical Sciences has forged a strong relationship with Servier with many of our graduates going on to work in numerous roles within the company.
