Professor Henry Lowe (Commonwealth Scholar, MSc Pharmaceutical Chemistry, University of Manchester) will be speaking at the Eighth Annual Congress of International Drug Discovery Science and Technology in Beijing, China in October.

The presentation will focus on work on Jamaican medicinal plants, particularly his recent work with Tillandsia recurvata, otherwise called ball moss, which has demonstrated potent anti-cancer activities during testing.

Professor Lowe holds a number of posts including Executive Chairman of the Environmental Health Foundation, and Adjunct Professor at the University of Technology, Jamaica and the University of Maryland, USA.
