About this work


A Symposium organised by the Chemical Heritage Foundation in Philadelphia, PA, brought together a panel of scientists, Nobel Laureates, historians of science, and leaders in the biotechnology industry to discuss the concerns surrounding the modern biotech revolution. Panellists reflect on personal experiences and insights from biotechnology's emerging years and assess their own roles in the discoveries and debates that took place. They also discuss issues raised by the audience who attended the symposium. The CHF President Arnold Thackray said in his introduction to the proceedings that the aim of the symposium was "to record and make the history of the molecular sciences and technologies", which may provide an exciting archive for historians of science. A transcript of the symposium is held in the MFVL collection.
