Hi All
Chas Bountra sadly had to cancel his Oxford Open Science appearance earlier
this year due to another commitment but he is appearing as part of the Open
Access 2013/2014 series (see flyer). A highly recommended speaker!


*Why is Oxford driving Open Access in Drug Discovery? (Tues 28 Jan 15.00 -
16.00) *–

The pharmaceutical industry is downsizing in Europe, including the UK,
because of poor returns on investment. With ageing societies and diseases
of modern living, many more patients are in desperate need of many more new
medicines. To this end, several scientists in Oxford are working together
to create a new ecosystem for drug discovery: one which pools the
considerable strengths in industry, with the resources and expertise of
academia, patient organisations and  regulatory agencies, in an “open” way.
  Prof Chas Bountra of the Nuffield Department of Medicine discusses this
“pre-competitive effort”  which is unrivalled by any other academic

Venue: Medical Sciences Teaching Centre, South Parks Road.
