The First Protein Crystallography PhDs: Dorothy Hodgkin And Max Perutz


A special seminar organized by the Graduate Students of Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics, hosted by the Center for Membrane and Cell Physiology seminar series. 

Speaker: Georgina Ferry, Writer, Publisher, Podcast and Radio Host

Website: mgf.longferry.co.uk

Dorothy Hodgkin and Max Perutz were two of the first PhD candidates to practice x-ray crystallography – ultimately paving the way for structural biology as we know it today. Georgina Ferry has catalogued their lives and work in excellent detail.
