Science Question Time is an exciting new venture between the Biochemical Society, the Campaign for Science and Engineering (CaSE) and staff at Imperial College London. At this, the fifth Science Question Time in London, we invited speakers and the audience to discuss the future of pharmaceuticals. This event formed part of the London Science Festival (LSF) 2011 events programme.
After the event:
Searching Twitter for the hashtag #SciQT will provide you with a rich source of commentary from both during the event and the discussion following. #futuredrugs and #LSF11 were also used.
A podcast is available here (with thanks to Martin '@sociablephysics' Austwick for recording the event).
A storify (report made from compiling tweets) of the event is available here (thanks to staff at Nature).
An article about the event appeared in February's edition of The Biochemist, the Biochemical Society's member’s magazine. This edition was themed on drug discovery. An archive of policy articles which have featured in The Biochemist can be found here. All members of the Society receive a hard copy of the magazine six times a year.
