Event description

Description

The next meeting will be hosted by the Cambridge Alliance on Medicines Safety (CAMS) on Tuesday 3rd October, please see below for the programme.


Cambridge Alliance on Medicines Safety (CAMS):

Safety is a key driver of attrition during drug development, and this could be improved with greater fundamental understanding of the drivers influencing how humans respond to medicines. As a fundamental investigative science, medicines safety also offers fascinating opportunities to understand complex biological control processes, when homeostatic mechanisms are experimentally disrupted. In some cases, unintended pharmacological effects have themselves been found to have direct clinical application.

The Cambridge Alliance on Medicines Safety is a pre-competitive research partnership initially between the University, the MRC Toxicology Unit, GSK and AstraZeneca established to bring together the community of medicines safety scientists in the Cambridge area. A key aim is to invigorate and expand research underpinning the safety of medicines, connecting researchers at the University whose work relates to safety of medicines to build an active academic research programme with strong collaborative links to pharmaceutical and human-safety related companies. For more information and to sign up for the mailing list, please visit the Alliance website. The Alliance is part of the Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences.
