The story of the Institute, our people and our science

Narrative and visual histories of the Gurdon Institute, from foundation through to our 25th anniversary in 2016

Our 25th year is the perfect time to review our history

...looking at how we began, who has come through our doors (and out again) and what our alumni and current members have achieved in research and wider impacts.

  • We are building a timeline with milestones in the history of the Institute, its staff, science and commercial successes.
  • Our map shows where we have seeded the global scientific community with Gurdon alumni who are now group leaders pursuing new research in their own labs.
  • We are collecting narratives from current and former Institute members about their time at the Institute and contributions to its history and happenings.  The first story comes from co-founder Ron Laskey
