Klaus Taschwer (Der Standard) will talk with Perutz biographer Georgina Ferry about the life, work and legacy of the Austrian-British biochemist. The conversation will be in English. Cornelius Obonya will read from the German version.
Max Ferdinand Perutz was born in Vienna on May 19, 1914, to a Jewish family. His life was marked by emigration to Great Britain in 1936, prison terms, and life as an "enemy alien". Years of tireless research followed, during which he headed the world-famous Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge (UK). In 1962 his scientific endeavours were finally rewarded with the award of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
