A Short Note About Dr Terry Hennessey:
Terry Hennessey qualified in Medicine at Oxford University where he was awarded a Doctor of Medicine for his research on antibiotic-resistant on enterobacteria (undertaken with Dr Naomi Datta at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School). Keenly aware of the need to consider the serious threat posed by drug-resistant infections, Terry joined Imperial Chemical Industries Pharmaceuticals (now part of AstraZeneca) where he initiated a wide range of in vitro and in vivo tests needed for the discovery and development of novel antibacterial agents. With his medical background, scientific excellence and natural authority Terry had a wide international network. Ever a Francophile, Terry’s team included a highly professional group of chemists at ICI’s research laboratory in Reims. Notable among Terry’s achievements at ICI was the development of chlorhexidine as ‘Corsodyl’ in dental hygiene, and the novel broad-spectrum β-lactam meropenem (originally developed by Dainippon Sumitomo Pharma Co. Ltd.).
The BSAC would like to thank Jan Hennessey & Dr Trevor Franklin (formerly head of Bioscience at ICI) for this account of Terry’s contribution to the field of Antimicrobial Agents.
