Welcome to the Knutsford SciBar website

On the 15th May, Knutsford SciBarian Iain Glen gave an excellent talk on the development of the intravenous anaesthetic propofol (trade name “Diprivan”), for which he was awarded the Lasker Award in 2018. Anyone who has had a medical procedure requiring anaesthetic during the last 20 years or so has probably benefitted from Iain and his team’s work, as propofol is generally the anaesthetic of choice because of patients’ quick recovery time, and general lack of significant side effects.

Next month on June 12th (when we will be back to the usual 2nd Monday monthly) Professor Sue Kimber will give a talk entitled “The Use of Embryonic Stem Cells in Clinical Treatments”.

See below for an overview of Professor Kimber’s talk, and the About page for timings of all meetings, and details of the venue and parking.
