For this issue, we travelled to Bern and visited Biozentrum alumna Catherine Brun, who works as a scientific advisor at the ETH Board. In the interview, she reveals to us that leaving your comfort zone can be quite daunting but, in any case, it is a chance to try something new. New experiences and learning shape the brain. That is what interests Flavio Donato, the new Assistant Professor of Neurobiology at the Biozentrum. Prof. Richard Neher shares his point of view about Open Access publication and Roger Jenni, known as “Mister Neubau”, tells us about his increasing learning curve during all the phases of implementing the “New Biozentrum Building” project. And we go back in time, giving you an impression of the symposium in honor of the Nobel laureate Prof. em. Werner Arber, who celebrated his 90th birthday.
