Ian Dunham: How can we make safe and effective drugs?

Speaker: Ian Dunham

Modern medicines are increasingly sophisticated, yet for every new drug that is approved nine other drugs fail in clinical trials. Ian will describe the modern drug discovery process, why potential drugs fail and how we can improve the process to produce more effective and safe medicines.

Ian has spent 30 years working at the forefront of human genetics and genomics research including the human genome project, and now leads a consortium that aims to translate those developments into safe and effective medicines. After training in Oxford, St Louis and London he has spent the rest of his career based in Hinxton at the Wellcome Genome Campus. His interests include fused glass art.
