 en BIOTECH IN THE UK - Letter from Cambridge
Keir Bristow


In 1996 I spent the best part of a day in Cambridge. Like millions before me, I was rather dazed by the beauty of this 'jewel of East Anglia'. In particular I remember being overwhelmed by the high gothic architecture and choir of King's College Chapel.

Then a law student in Australia whose principal aim in life was to leave university well and truly behind, I'm sure I would have rated the chances of my studying here as being, to a first approximation, zero, had the thought even crossed my mind. And yet here I am, a student rather than a tourist, for a year not a day.

How it is that I returned to Cambridge is worth telling. But first, some recent local history, which will hopefully interest you further in the Cambridge biotech success story.
