Full event details

This talk will look at some well-known pharmaceutical molecules and the history of their discovery and development. A typical example might be atropine, a natural product found in the plant belladonna that has a history as a useful medicine and a deadly poison. Soil, the sea and the rainforest will be explored as sources of new medicines. 

 

The Discover Programme consists of subject-specific lectures and workshops aimed at Year 12 or Year 1 college students, delivered by academics that teach at the University. 

These sessions are designed to both complement the curriculum and introduce new subject areas.
