The Novartis Foundation, and its predecessor the Ciba foundation, had a distinguished history in the promotion of international discussion of biomedicine.
From 1947-2008, thousands of scientists attended meetings at 41 Portland Place, including some 84 Nobel Laureates. These prestigious symposia were published as reports.
