Who We Are
SToP (STudents of Pharmacology) is a not-for-profit student run organisation at the University of Melbourne. We consist of postgraduate students (honors, masters and PhD) within the Pharmacology and Therapeutics department of the School of Biomedical Sciences.
Our group undertakes a range of activities including social events, academic workshops and career progression seminars. We provide a supportive environment to foster social interactions and maximal academic output. We also engage with other social committees around the university including the Physiology department, Pathology department, Florey, Bio21 and WEHI providing a means for our students to engage with other faculties and students throughout the university.
