Speaker information: Dr Patrick Vallance, President of Pharmaceutical R&D at GlaxoSmithKline. Host: British Pharmacological Society. Summary: Medicines change medicine. History shows us that the biggest improvements in healthcare are thanks to new medicines and vaccines: HIV infection changed rapidly from a death sentence to become a chronic but manageable disease for those able to access medicines; the development of increasingly effective chemotherapy means the outlook for many people diagnosed with cancer is dramatically different now from what it was even ten years ago; and the advent of new medicines is improving the care offered to people with dementia. Tickets are £5 per person, including tea/coffee on arrival and a reception for attendees following the lecture. http://www.bps.ac.uk/meetings/President_Lecture
