The city of Cambridge has an impressive record of scientific contributions that have been of monumental benefit to society as a whole. This includes the discovery of the structure of DNA and the conception of the Turing Machine which established the foundations of the field of artificial intelligence. With this in mind, we are incredibly proud to have launched a series of content with Cambridge business publication, Business Weekly; the first of which is "70 years of the Cambridge DNA revolution" penned by Mark Schuster from our Cambridge office.

Marks & Clerk celebrates innovation in Cambridge with Business Weekly
Cambridge has laid claim to many historic scientific achievements in the 800 years since the foundation of its University. But one of Cambridge’s most revolutionary scientific contributions occurred not in the distant past, but comfortably within living memory. 2023 marks 70 years since the elucidation of the double helix structure of DNA. This discovery transformed our understanding of biology and paved the way for many extraordinary biotechnology innovations. The DNA revolution has its origins, and its future, rooted here in Cambridge. Prior to the discovery of DNA’s double helix, some of our foundational understandings of biology had already been established in Cambridge. Charles Darwin, who studied at Christ’s College, articulated his radical theory of evolution by natural selection in the mid-nineteenth century.
