  • Dr Olga Kennard OBE FRS founded the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) in 1965. From its humble beginnings, the CSD ​now contains over 1.2M small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structures. Continually growing, big-data learnings from the collective results are used globally to advance scientific research into pharmaceuticals, functional materials, catalysts, and more in both commercial and academic research. This interview with Dr Kennard was recorded in 2011 by William Town, former Chair of the Governing Board of Trustees, CCDC, as part of a Living History series.
