Meeting venues - Vision Hall, Watling Street, Radlett, WD7 7JJ - Room 4 on the second floor.
There will be a charge for each meeting which will cover expenses, hiring the hall and providing the usual refreshments after the talks.
The meeting in Vision Hall on Tuesday 17th March has been cancelled. Cathy Waddington is not well enough to give her talk entitled “Pharmaceuticals – An Analytical Chemist’s Perspective”. The talk would have provided a high-level overview of the small molecule drug development process. Many types of analytical testing are performed during development and these would have been described along with contextual examples and anecdotal experiences of the speaker.
There will be no meeting in April. Details in due course regarding the meeting on Tuesday 26th May.
