Event details:

In 1953 the Hinxton Hall estate underwent a major transformation in its role and function when the research and manufacturing company Tube Investments moved in.

In the second talk of the series, The Hinxton Hall Estate: Georgians, Jet Engines and Genes, we find out how the industrial innovation that took place at the Hall formed a key part of the UK’s recovery after the Second World War.

We hear from people who worked on site during this exciting time in manufacturing history, and how the precedent they set for translating research into everyday applications lives on today at the Wellcome Genome Campus and beyond.

The Wellcome Sanger Institute is a world-leading genomics research centre, based on the Wellcome Genome Campus, arguably the largest single-site community of expertise in Genomes and BioData in the world. We undertake large-scale research that forms the foundations of knowledge in biology and medicine. We are open and collaborative; our data, results, tools and technologies are shared across the globe to advance science.

Our ambition is vast – we take on projects that are not possible anywhere else.
