We are proud to share that yesterday the Royal Dutch Chemical Society (KNCV) named the Pharmacology Laboratory at Pivot Park a National Chemical Landmark. This property, the Banting Building, was the beginning of many chemical-pharmaceutical inventions with great social impact, including the development of the birth control pill.
The KNCV annually recognizes one site that has been important to chemical history. The National Chemical Landmark will take the form of a plaque on the building and is a way for the Royal Dutch Chemical Society to put these places on the map. According to Brigitte Drees, the recognition mainly comes with an added responsibility to take good care of it and keep the building in honour.
