Public Lecture - Professor David Nutt, Friday 10th October 2014

Professor David Nutt (Imperial College, London)

Drug and alcohol research: time for a new scientific Enlightenment?

The Enlightenment changed the way western society viewed science and overcame the oppression of the Church's teachings. However overthe last 50 years a new censorship has emerged under the guise of the UN charters on drug control. These have inappropriately punished millions of people worldwide and severely limited medical research to the detriment of millions of patients.  My talk will illustrate these little known facts and explain why we need a new Enlightenment movement to rectify this censorship of research.

Date: Friday 10th October

Time: 3pm (one hour)

Venue: Great Hall, Wills Memorial Building
