Vie D'or

Memoirs of a Pharmaceutical Physician

by

These are the memoirs of Dr. David R. Glover's professional career in pharmaceutical medicine. His formative school and undergraduate years led to a unique and remarkable journey through medicine and medicines.

Like many medical careers there were a number of twists and turns which encompassed clinical and academic medicine, clinical research and drug development. He touched upon or was deeply involved with most types of medicines from simple pills and potions through to stem cells. He has recalled many anecdotes relating to the drugs, the people and the events that enriched his career and included some rarely seen illustrations of old medicines and personal photographs.

This is not an in-depth pharmacological treatise but it is sufficiently detailed where merited, particularly regarding the infamous "clinical trial that went wrong" in 2006. In his Vie D’or the reader will find that he enjoyed more than his fifteen minutes of fame.

I am very proud to be featured in "Cambridge Torchbearers", a publication by Cambridge Business Weekly in association with the Cambridge Judge Business School and Horizon Discovery, Cambridge."Entrepreneurs fanning the flames of innovation" pp62-5.

Review by Dr. Brian Gennery, past president of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Medicine, published in The British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology.This quote is from the final paragraph:

“Perhaps those who might get most out of it will be young doctors who are either just starting in pharmaceutical medicine or thinking of changing their career into this discipline. They will learn a lot which could stand them in good stead as they move forward in various jobs."

David Glover is a physician with a fascinating career. In "Vie D'or" he describes the somewhat unconventional path that he took through medicine and the pharmaceutical industry. His journey took in almost every kind of medicine from over-the-counter pills and potions through to world leading biotechnology and futuristic therapy using stem cells. He touches upon the drugs, the companies, the people and the events that he experienced over more than 35 years, including his unique insight into "the clinical trial that went wrong" in 2006, and brings them to life with selected pictures and rarely seen old product images.
