报告人简历:Michael SPEDDING, PhD, FBPhS. Michael is Secretary General, International Union of Pharmacology and Presidentof Spedding Research Solutions SAS (Paris), a research company working on ‘impossible’ diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and glioblastoma. We are developing a generic drug for ALS. He was secretary or chair of NC-IUPHAR from 1990-2015, growing this to 90 subcommittees of 860 expert scientists contributing to the IUPHAR/BPS guidetopharmacology.org, a freely available knowledgebase on all drug targets. IUPHAR and IUIS contribute to a new guidetoimmunopharmacology. Michael’s main interests are : pharmacology, drug discovery and development (~40 compounds into preclinical research for multiple indications ; 11 compounds into Phase I, one to market; 3 ‘assists’ of marketed drugs); the brain circuits in cognition, stress and psychiatry; and how disease, immunology and inflammation can affect them. He runs research programs for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, glioblastoma, psychiatry and neuroinflammation via international collaborations. Michael obtained his BSC, PhD and lectured at Sunderland, then 8 years at Merrell Dow research in Strasbourg (calcium channels), then Director of Pharmacology at Syntex, Edinburgh. He set up Servier’s new CNS centre (Paris, and later set up a Budapest centre for medchem). >200 publications, >30 patents, Thomson-Reuter’s 3000 most-cited scientists (all disciplines), h-index: 60. Set up many research consortia. Michael has been a competitive athlete for 57 years (>110,000 kms run) and is interested in how evolution and the trophic/inflammatory interface allows, or stops, such activity. To conteract age-related slowing, he also does entry-level car racing (club Lotus).
