Mankind has exploited the medicinal properties of plants for thousands of years, yet the role of plants in modern medicine is still considered to be peripheral by many people. This talk attempts to put the record straight and to show that plant products are used everyday by all of us to relieve pain and suffering, to heal wounds and cure diseases.
The speaker, Timothy Walker (www.timothywalker.org.uk), is currently lecturer in Plant Science at Somerville, Pembroke and Hertford Colleges, Oxford, and was formerly Director of Oxford Botanic Garden.
£12 for guests.
