On Wednesday 14th November, we will be honouring Ayn Rand and her ideas with a special guest lecture at the prestigious Goldsmiths’ Hall.
Dr Michael Kauffman, CEO of Karyopharm Therapeutics and an Objectivist, will be giving our annual Ayn Rand Lecture on "Reason, Purpose, Self-Esteem: Bringing Lifesaving Drugs to Humankind".
