      Unlocking the Medieval Medicine Cabinet

      Can exploration of historical medical texts lead to the discovery of new medicines? Freya Harrison is a microbiologist working in the School of Life Sciences at the University of Warwick. In 2014 she co-founded an interdisciplinary consortium to investigate remedies used to treat infection in pre-Enlightenment Europe. Working with colleagues from across the sciences, arts and humanities, the AncientBiotics consortium aims to datamine historical medical texts to uncover patterns of natural product usage, and to identify, reconstruct and test remedies which may lead to the discovery of novel antimicrobial compounds.  Library open from 5pm. Refreshments from 5:30pm.  Join us for a subscription buffet supper after the lecture: Faculty Members £25  Non-members £30  Students £10 For those attending the lecture, a suggested voluntary donation (£5 members, £10 non-members) to support the Faculty would be most welcome. Gift aid envelopes will be available  Please book with Maria Ferran, Faculty Manager, by 25th May 2020.  Email: facultyhp@apothecaries.org or telephone: 020 7236 1189
