Guided Penicillin walk round Oxford with Dr Jeffrey Aronson

Tuesday 11 June 2019 at 2 pm
Start outside the University Museum

Dr Jeffrey Aronson is a Physician and Clinical Pharmacologist working in the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine in the University of Oxford. He is President Emeritus, an Honorary Fellow, and Vice-President Publications of the British Pharmacological Society and an Emeritus Fellow of Green-Templeton College, Oxford. He has written widely about all aspects of clinical pharmacology, medical history, philosophy of medicine, and medical language.

He organized the Penicillin 50 Symposium in Oxford in 1991 and has written articles about penicillin. His penicillin walk starts at the University Museum at 2pm and visits sites in the University’s science area, the Botanic Gardens, and the old Radcliffe Infirmary, with passing comments about other places on the way. At a brisk pace it takes about an hour and a half, and we may go for tea afterwards.

The walk is free of charge and is limited to 12 people.
