Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund (ACTF)

The Analytical Chemistry Trust Fund (ACTF) is a charity that promotes and assists the science and study of analytical chemistry, including matters relating to the analysis, nature and composition of natural and manufactured materials for the benefit of the public. ACTF is an active partner of CAMS, providing funds to support academic awards (including Lectureships, PostDocs, Fellowships and PhDs), events and secretariat activities.

More recently, ACTF has recognised the disruption that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on analytical science students and launched a £500 Disruption Grant aimed at students in the last 6 months of their PhD who would benefit from additional monetary support. Funding supports personal costs (e.g. rent or other caring/living costs) and cannot be used for laboratory research costs.

RSC Separation Science Group



Joint Pharmaceutical Analysis Group (JPAG)

JPAG has over 1,500 members worldwide and is jointly sponsored by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and the Royal Society of Chemistry. Its remit is "to encourage, assist and extend the knowledge and study of pharmaceutical analysis and quality control by the holding of scientific meetings, the promotion of lectures, practical demonstrations and discussions".

The Group is very active and organises up to eight meetings a year addressing all aspects of pharmaceutical analysis and many related facets of medicine control and registration. One meeting every year is allotted for Short Papers, with prizes awarded for the best presentations by less experienced analysts. Some meetings are held in collaboration with other RSC interest groups and other organisations. Since 1998, minisymposia and Short Papers sessions have been included within an annual national conference, originally the British Pharmaceutical Conference and latterly the Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences PharmSci Conference.

JPAG is very proud of its involvement with both of its sponsoring professional bodies. JPAG maintains strong links with the industrial, academic and enforcement sectors which is why it can develop topical and relevant programmes for you.
