As the fourth oldest surviving college of the University of Cambridge, Gonville and Caius has a long and rich history dating back to 1348.
The college has been home to twelve Nobel prize winners alongside prestigious names in the fields of art, science, sport and culture. These include Sir James Chadwick, who discovered the neutron, and Francis Crick, who co-discovered the structure of DNA.
The Yvonne L. K. Lui Foundation has provided the college with assistance to ensure it can continue to invest in its teaching, research and students well into the future. Such support ensures that future generations of young people will be able to enjoy the same benefits as current students receive today.
In May 2015, Dr. Lui was invited to celebrate Professor Stephen Hawking’s 50th anniversary as a fellow at Gonville and Caius College.
