David Nutt - Edmond J. Safra Professor of Neuropsychopharmacology and director of the Neuropsychopharmacology Unit in the Division of Brain Sciences.
David has spent a lifetime sharing his expertise on Neuropsychopharmacology serving on numerous national committees & boards (Safety of
Medicines, NHS drugs, Ministry of Defence Science Advisory Board). His infamous and controversial dismissal from role as Chair of the Advisory Committee on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD – 1998-2009) has shown the extent to which Science sometimes clashes with the "Non-Science" of policy makers.
Don't miss this exciting talk as he shares his valuable experience Fighting Non-Science in UK Drug Policy!
This very special talk will be held in the 5W 2.3 Lecture Theatre and will be followed by a wine reception in the 5W Foyer to sustain many further interesting discussions.
