Science in an Age of Endarkenment, with David Colquhoun
25 Jan, 2008
When alternative medicine and academia collide... Featuring a major public symposium with David Colquhoun
Eminent UK scientist and noted skeptic David Colquhoun was recently at the centre of controversy after critiquing the pseudoscientific claims of a homeopathic practitioner. Prof. Colquhoun was asked to remove his site from the UCL server, but after a backlash from the scientific community, his website was revived. He will be speaking about alternative medicine, academia, and the conflicts that arise when the two intersect.
David Colquhoun is professor of pharmacology at University College London and fellow of the Royal Society. He runs a blog called "Improbable Science" ( http://www.dcscience.net ) dedicated to exposing and debunking pseudoscientific claims.
