Richmond Lectures: David Nutt

David Nutt will join us on 25 January to present his Richmond Lecture entitled “Why we should put science – not nonsense– at the heart of UK drug and alcohol policies.”

His talk will explore the negative impacts of current UK and international drug policies on people, on health, on society and on research.

He will explain how illegal drug laws are the worst censorship of research in history and how they must be changed for the good of us all.

Professor David Nutt is professor of neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College London, chair of DrugScience.org.uk and author of Drugs: Without The Hot Air. He was chair of the UK's advisory committee on the misuse of drugs until his controversial dismissal in 2009.

The Richmond Lectures are the University's flagship public lecture series. Now in their third year, they aim to promote cross-disciplinary discussion by hosting leading thinkers and speakers.

The Richmond Lectures are made unique by the fact that speakers are nominated and invited solely by students.

The series takes place each year at the Richmond Building, home of the Students' Union, and are free to attend for students, staff, and the public.
