Middlebury

MiddLab

Dr. Terrett led the team of medicinal chemists at Pfizer’s UK laboratories who investigated a novel therapeutic mechanism that ultimately resulted in the molecule destined to become Viagra. The presentation describes how a project initially intended to find a cardiovascular medicine resulted in a treatment for erectile dysfunction, and how new clinical methods were required to test the effectiveness of the drug. The talk also describes what happens when unassuming scientists are thrust into the media limelight.
