From Research to science entrepreneur to Nobel Prize Winner: Greg Winter

Bristol-Myers Squibb Lecture Theatre, 29 Lensfield Road , Cambridge , CB2 1ER

Tue, 3 March 2020, 18:00 – 21:00

Join us as we hear from Nobel Prize winner Sir Gregory Winter about his journey from academia to the world of investors and startups.

About the event :

We're delighted to host Greg Winter, Cambridge's very own Nobel Prize winning molecular biologist who will talk about his journey going from researcher to a world leading life sciences innovator and entrepreneur within the field of antibody therapeutics. 

In recent years the application of genetic engineering technologies and/or laboratory-based evolution have led to the development of antibodies as a new class of pharmaceutical drugs. Many of the best-selling drugs are now antibodies, and continuing technology development is opening up new prospects for antibody therapeutics, and for other peptide- and protein-based drugs created in like manner.
