@HealthMed The Science Museum’s Dana Centre in South Kensington in London aims to provide updates for adults on contemporary science, technology and culture in an informative and innovative format. For those who can't make it in person the Centre makes its events available for interaction online or by smartphone.
The next event at the Dana Centre - on 16th February - is a sell-out session on the Magic of Medicines, organised jointly with the public engagement team at the British Pharmacological Society. Themes will range from drug discovery from Nature by the ancient Babylonians and Greeks such as that chewing meadowsweet or willow bark relieves pain, to new experimental approaches to drug discovery, latest advances in personalizing medicines, supported by companion diagnostics, to the need to maintain vigilant pharmacology and related expertise ready to combat new and unresolved disease challenges, in the face a declining pharmaceutical sector.
