Why are new drugs so expensive? How does something become a drug? Why are so few new drugs coming out? Where do new pharmaceuticals come from? How are they made? Why do we struggle to develop drugs for diseases like Alzheimer’s?
Carleton’s Jeff Manthorpe, assistant professor of chemistry, will present answers to these questions and more in an in-depth look at how chemistry, biology, biochemistry, medicine and business intertwine in the complex web of the pharmaceutical industry. This event is free and open to the public.
