Over 40,000 teachers and students use this site every month. Teachers can use the high quality animations and diagrams to display full screen size on their interactive whiteboard, or even download for inclusion in their lesson plans.

Interactive resources on this site apply the science taught in schools to its use in the workplace and, particularly, to the treatment of disease. Materials cover topics within the school curriculum from primary through to post-16, with information, animations and ‘test yourself’ quizzes.

Biological GCSE topics covered include:
Diabetes
Genes and inheritance
Homeostasis
Heart and circulation
Hormones

Some of the content is useful in other areas of the curriculum, including History, PE and Health & Social Care.

A full list of the topics covered in the interactive resources for all ages is available.

Resource Library

The Resource Library allows you to search for animations, diagrams, posters and worksheets on a wide variety of topics to use in your teaching.They can be downloaded for use offline by teachers and students in educational settings as stated in the terms and conditions for the resource library.

The information on Curriculum Links for each Interactive Content Topic is continually updated to keep abreast of ongoing curriculum changes in England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
 

Publications

ABPI Publications can be ordered through our main website. No charge is made for publications but there may be restrictions for non-UK orders and on the number that may be ordered. Some publications have been created specifically for use in schools and colleges, others are for a more general readership.

We have compiled a series of Useful Links to other websites supported by the pharmaceutical industry.
