Late posting today. I had to work this morning and got caught up in politics this afternoon. This is a sad piece to start with. The Centre for Drug Research in Amsterdam is being shut down after many years of providing significant research. I'm sorry to hear this news. It feels like a great loss.
I met Peter Cohen and heard him speak at DPA conference a couple of years ago. He's a brilliant scientist and a charming man. It's not clear why the Centre is closing, but one hopes it's not on account of political pressure.
The only bright note here is you can order their books and publications for free. I wouldn't hestitate to recommend the quality of their work.
