The moving story of a renowned medical scientist who was tragically cut down in his prime. Alan Goffe was born in Britain in 1920 to a Jamaican father and an English mother, both of whom were physicians. During the 50s and 60s, Dr Goffe was one of a group of microbiologists who helped develop and improve vaccines designed to fight two of the world's most deadly infectious diseases: polio and measles. But less than a year after he established his own department at the Wellcome Research Laboratories, he was tragically killed in a yachting accident, aged just 46.
