Online event


Wed 20th Oct, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

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 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.

Our panel for the night: Engineer and presenter Kate Bellingham will be in conversation with Harriet Fear MBE (Director of Cambridge&), Professor Tim Minshall (Dr John C Taylor Professor of Innovation & Head of the Institute for Manufacturing, University of Cambridge), Dr Adrain Ibrahim (Head of Technology Transfer and Business Development, Sanger Institute), and Peter Duncumb and David Melford (Former Directors of Tube Investments Research Laboratories)
