Since ancient times, humans have looked for medicines in some of the most unlikely places. Our next public lecture speaker Associate Professor Bryan Grieg Fry will explain how the toxic secretions of venomous animals can be studied to create lifesaving pharmaceutical drugs. After all, these toxins have evolved to attack specific biological targets and better understanding these mechanisms could help us unravel the secrets of successful drug development.
