Parmi les chercheurs célèbres qui s'y sont succédé :

Plus récemment, James Watson et Francis Crick ont déterminé en 1953 la structure en double hélice de l'ADN après de nombreux tâtonnements et grâce notamment à la diffractométrie de rayons X. Cette découverte leur valut le prix Nobel de médecine avec Maurice Wilkins.
