Professor Glenn King will headline a special series of ‘Meet the Researchers’ during National Stroke Week.

Prof King will explain his research on harnessing the chemistry of venoms from arthropod predators (spiders, scorpions and centipedes) to develop novel pharmaceuticals to treat chronic pain, epilepsy and stroke. 

Prof King’s lab is working closely with several pharmaceutical companies to develop drugs for clinical use and, additionally, Prof King has also charted new territory in the field of agriculture by developing venom peptides as eco-friendly bioinsecticides.

Session Overview:

  • Presentation from Prof King.
