Meanwhile, Michaela Roth, has been seeking for different perspectives, first embarking for Tanzania and later to Sweden for her PhD. Still on the move is also Prof.em. Urs A. Meyer who with his eighty years has become none the quieter. He is involved in teaching, advises startups and travels the world giving lectures. Last but not least, Prof. Markus Affolter gives his viewpoint on CRISPR/Cas9.
