Imogen Temple Savage was born in 1948 in Woking, Surrey, to parents Richard Temple Savage and Valerie Patricia Harris Teall.
Professionally, Imogen was a well respected pharmacist. Having gained a degree in pharmacy at the University of Nottingham, she started her career in London and worked at St Thomas’s and Whipps Cross among other hospitals.
She completed her PhD at the Institute of Psychiatry in 1985, focusing her thesis on ‘Uptake of monoamines by platelets of depressed patients during treatment with antidepressant drugs’.
I shared an office with Imogen for three wonderful fun-filled years when she was a Maplethorpe fellow at King’s College London and I learned much about pharmacy and research from her.
She also spent some of her working life at The Pharmaceutical Journal.
At the end of her career, she became a senior lecturer at the London School of Pharmacy.
Imogen leaves behind her beloved husband Dave and her sister Josephine.
