As we approach the end of our Centenary year we’re starting to look back at all the ways in which we marked turning 100. One of our Centenary highlights was the official opening of the new MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology building by Her Majesty the Queen. Our Chief Executive John Savill was particularly pleased to receive this feedback from a pupil at Great and Little Shelford Primary School, whose choir sang to welcome the Queen to the building. We hope she remembers “the Queen’s lovely feathery hat and missing a bit of school” for a long time to come.
We’re also particularly fond of these photographs comparing both times the Queen has opened the LMB. And for more Centenary-based singing, you can watch the MRC Toxicology Unit’s specially composed song performed by local schoolchildren and volunteers.
