Chemistry in Action Visit
Senior Chemistry students made a site visit to a drug manufacturing facility run by a local company called TopChem, in Ballymote. TopChem manufacture active pharmaceutical ingredients which are the part of a medicine that has a therapeutic effect. In relation to a pain killer that would be the part of a pain killer that reduces pain.
The visit offered the opportunity for students to see first hand how Chemistry as a subject contributes to society both in terms of job creation and the synthesis of useful chemicals such as medicines. It also highlighted to students how in demand Science and Chemistry graduates are for the success of the pharmaceutical industry.
