An Interview Worth Mentioning

Our researchers often appear in the pages of Nature, Science, etc, but here is one we think is worth mentioning: Christoph A. Thaiss, a PhD student in the immunology group of Dr. Eran Elinav, recently appeared in Nature – as an interviewer of Bruce Beutler, who shared one half of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Jules Hoffmann  for their work on the activation of innate immunity. Thaiss and Beutler were at the Lindau meetings, where young researchers get to rub shoulders with Nobel laureates. Beutler, whose work has been called the second revolution in immunology says that there will be third, fourth and fifth revolution until we can truly answer our questions about the immune system. Read the interview if you think you know how a scientist should conduct his or her research, and what the future of science should look like.
