Professor Stuart J. Conway CChem FRSC,
Fellow in Organic Chemistry
Professor Stuart Conway, recipient of the 2016 Lectureship from the Biological and Medicinal Chemistry Sector of the Royal Society of Chemistry, is working with St Hugh’s students to discover chemical solutions to biological problems such as making cancer drugs more effective.
His talk will focus on Fighting Cancer: Epigenetic Targets for Oncology
Epigenetics refers to heritable change characteristics that can be influenced by the environment, but which do not result from changes in the genetic code. Epigenetics is an area of intense current interest in medicinal chemistry, biology, and medicine.
Professor Stuart Conway will introduce current understanding of the molecular basis of epigenetic processes, and explain how these findings are being exploited in medicinal chemistry to develop medicines with innovative new mechanisms of action.
Tickets are FREE and open to alumni and guests
Registration is essential.
Following the talk we will be heading to a local restaurant for an informal dinner and drinks with alumni and friends and would love to see you there – details for the dinner can be found here.
