Event Description

Full Description:
When you think of animals such as spiders and cone snails, you imagine the pain and harm they can cause to people. But what if some of our deadliest creatures held the key to the next generation of painkillers and treatments for other diseases?

Professor Glenn King and Dr Irina Vetter are exploring the chemical cocktails present in the venom of animals such as spiders and cone snails to uncover new treatments for pain, stroke and epilepsy. They will take us through how they came to search in the most unlikely of places for treatments, how you develop medicines from venoms that could otherwise kill us, and what the next steps are for progressing these treatments into the clinic.
