Professor Frank Fish Memorial Award Lecture
Biologically active compounds from plants: 40 years of searching for a scientific pot of gold
Professor A. Douglas Kinghorn
Professor and Jack L. Beal Chair College of Pharmacy, The Ohio State University
The second Professor Frank Fish Memorial Award lecture was held on Wednesday 9 October 2013 at the UCL School of Pharmacy.
Introduced by Professor Michael Heinrich, Professor A. Douglas Kinghorn discussed how over the last 40 years, there has been a steady rate of introduction of new approved single chemical entity drugs obtained from an ever-widening array of terrestrial and marine organisms.
The further development of some of these agents was described alongside the lecture's central theme of the role of mentoring in career development, as exemplified by the key role that Professor Fish played for Professor Kinghorn.
