Dr Frederick Sanger

Biochemist Dr Frederick Sanger is one of the very few people to have been awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry twice: in 1958, for his work on the structure of proteins, and in 1980, for research into base sequences in nucleic acids, both of which played a crucial role in unlocking the genetic code. In this interview, he talks about his life and how he came to be employed in the field of biochemistry and acknowledges the individuals who helped him to carry out his award-winning work.
