Interaction with industry

Professor Stone has substantial experience in interactions with the pharmaceutical industry.
He has acted as a Consultant for existing research projects and an Advisor in the development of new pharmacological approaches to disease and its treatment

He was Co-director of the organisation PharmaLinks which promoted academic research to pharmaceutical companies worldwide, though with a special personal interest in Japan.

He has also published several works involving investigations of structure-activity relationships and the molecular basis of pharmacological activity.

Popular Science

In 2000 Prof. Stone authored a book for lay audiences on the mechanisms by which drugs act. The book – titled “Pills, Potions and Poisons” covered the treatment of many medical disorders, explaining basic aspects of disease and the ways in which drugs could be used for treatment with many helpful illustrations. A  key feature of the book was relating how many currently used drugs were originally discovered or derived from earlier, sometimes accidental, observations. The book was co-written with a clinician Dr. L. Gail Darlington and is available at:-
