The Long Fox Memorial Lecture
Professor David Nutt, DM, FRCP, FRCPsych, FSB, FMedSci
“How revising the drug laws would lead to a revolution in brain medicine”
David Nutt, a Bristolian, got his secondary education in Bristol Grammar School and went to Medical School in Downing College, Cambridge and Guy's Hospital, London. He was previously an academic in Bristol, running the Psychopharmacology Unit. Presently, he is the Professor of Neuropsychopharmacology at Imperial College London. He is sure to deliver an interesting lecture as he is no stranger to controversy. In 2007, because of his published work in the Lancet on the actual harm caused by drugs, he was dismissed from the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs. Perhaps he will tell us of the progress with his design of "alcosynth", a recreational drug which has same effect as alcohol but does less physical harm.

"Adventures in Albania - trafficking Hope!"
On April 10th, at the Engineers’ House, Dr Niall Moore took us through an amazing medley of his experiences of working in Albania – from radioactive courgettes to driving a land Rover full of mobility assistance equipment across England to be shipped to Albania. His inspiring experiences were echoed by many in the audience and there was an active post-talk discussion about his encounters.
