Sir Gregory Winter was awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for making monoclonal antibodies using a technique called phage display. This talk will explore how he did this and how his earlier work led to the development of drugs such as trastuzumab (Herceptin) used to treat breast cancer, and adalimumab (Humira) used to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Join Sir Gregory as he explores what his work means, why it was such a breakthrough and what new medicines could be created in the future.
