Max Perutz 1914-2002: 'the godfather of molecular biology' - video

Image
Scientists who worked with the Nobel prize-winning pioneer discuss his legacy alongside footage and previously unseen interviews. Max Perutz, the Austrian-born British molecular biologist, founded the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LMB) at Cambridge University in the postwar years where he was the prominent figure in a group of brilliant scientists. He was awarded a Nobel prize in 1962 for working out the structure of hemoglobin. Having worked under JD Bernal, the pioneer in X-ray crystallography, Perutz also fostered the talents of his student Francis Crick alongside post-doc James Watson, who worked in his Cambridge lab before the pair discovered the structure of DNA
