A new plaque has been unveiled outside the recently opened Glenn Berg Building on the Babraham Research Campus commemorating the life of Lt. Glenn Berg.
Lieutenant Berg, a USAF pilot from Minnesota, was in a squadron escorting large bombers as they headed across the English Channel towards Europe on bombing raids, and then returned to meet them on their return flights.
Lieutenant Berg lost his life on March 5, 1944, when his P-47 Thunderbolt fighter jet broke down a short distance from base and exploded on impact at Copley Hill Farm, part of the wider campus. He was 26 years old.
The unveiling ceremony was attended by local and international stakeholders, including members of South Cambridgeshire County Council and the US Air Force, as well as representatives from the life sciences real estate company BioMed Realty and the Babraham Institute, a major shareholder of Campus.
The event was hosted by BioMed Realty, which owns and operates nearly 1 million square feet of first-rate laboratories and offices in Cambridge.
The company announced in October last year that it was expanding its presence at the Babraham Research Campus after forming a joint venture with Babraham Research to offer a 40,000-square-foot purpose-built building with a new equipped laboratory.
BioMed Realty is also helping develop the Accelerate @ Babraham Program of the Babraham Research Campus.
