5.4 The medical chemistry strategy
The search for new medicinal products is one of the major driving forces behind the development and application of new synthetic methods. This unit focuses on a specific case study, which follows the development of a drug for the treatment of high blood pressure. It is a particularly good example of the application of organic chemistry in the pharmaceutical industry, and illustrates the scientific processes that are involved in the development of any new drug.

Steve Jobs: Most Recent Vision for the Future -- A World without DRM
The issue of using hardware- or software-based digital rights management, or "DRM", to restrict how music and movies can be copied or shared has spurred fierce debate between those who think DRM is essential to protect content from unauthorized use, and those who believe it undermines consumers' rights to do whatever they want with the content they purchase. On February 6, Apple CEO Steve Jobs added to the controversy by posting an open letter on Apple's web site in which he proposes that the re
“I blame the parents!” How often is that phrase used to explain the ills of society and is it valid? This material will consider how important is quality parenting, who judges it, and is its provision the sole responsibility of parents – should parents just be left to get on with it? It explores what parenting actually means, what is meant by quality parenting and, how it can be enhanced and promoted. It is of interest to anyone who is, might become or works with parents.
From Cultural Tensions to Political Conflict: A Dimension of the War of Ideas
Bassam Tibi, author of Islam?s Predicament with Modernity, argues that cultural tensions?if not dealt with and tamed?can escalate and lead to political conflict.
Water is arguably the most important physical resource as it is the one that is essential to human survival. Understanding the global water cycle and how we use water is essential to planning a sustainable source of water for the future. In the UK there area areas where water supplies are limited, shown by recent droughts. Globally, there are many areas that do not have enought water to support the currently population adequately. Decisions will have to be made on the best way to use water in a
Zero Chance? Aiming for zero in Weapons Control
These seminars are being run by the James Martin 21st Century School in association with the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict. Three intersecting considerations will be examined for their relevance in assessing the wisdom of adopting 'zero' as the goal for an international initiative: 1) Tactics: Whether and how framing an issue in terms of getting to zero can be a successful technique for issue advocates? 2) Diplomatic strategy: What is the wisdom of going ahead with a major
Dealing with doctrines: time to outlaw nuclear weapon use?
Achieving an end-state of "zero" has emerged as an important policy goal for a number of 21st Century challenges. The most prominent example is the "Global Zero" campaign to eliminate nuclear weapons. To stand any chance of getting near to zero, nuclear weapons must be marginalised in military and security doctrines. That means creating international norms and, if feasible, agreements that until nuclear weapons are universally prohibited by treaty, their use will be treated as a crime against hu

2.1 The sensible body
In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the approach to medicine was vastly different from today. Health is now recognised, at least in most European countries, as a universal right, but what was it like in the past? How did social and political boundaries affect access to treatment, and what were the treatments of the day? This unit examines how Scottish healthcare institutions were influenced by these underlying social, economic, political and cultural contexts.
