History of Pharmacy from Alchemy to the present day

Talks - History; Talks - General Interest

Event Description

Alchemy, the medieval forerunner of chemistry, concerned with the transmutation of matter, in particular with attempts to convert base metals into gold, or find a universal elixir of life. This presentation, fully illustrated, traces the history of this science through to the present day, and my career through the many changes in medicine and pharmacy.

Meet The Speaker, Malcolm


Following Malcolm's retirement, he has been able to follow his interest in Music, Art, and a miscellany of subjects to inform and entertain.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
