15th May 2023 – The discovery and development of propofol (“Diprivan”)

Note this session is on the third Monday of the month, a week later than usual because of the Coronation bank holiday on the second Monday.

Propofol (marketed as Diprivan) is now a widely used intravenous anaesthetic.  Iain Glen, its developer, will talk about its discovery and development.

He will comment on the technique of “target controlled infusion” and the trial of Conrad Murray for the killing of the singer Michael Jackson.
