Dubochet was born in Aigle, CH and was raised in the Swiss cantons of Vaud and Valais. He attended the École polytechnique de l'université de Lausanne (which became the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne in 1969) from 1962 to 1967, receiving a degree in physical engineering (in French: ingénieur physicien). In 1969, he obtained a certificate in molecular biology from the Univeristy of Geneva, after which he worked under the supervision of Eduard Kellenberger between the University of Geneva and the Biozentrum of the University of Basel (founded in 1971). Dubochet obtained his doctorate in 1973 (“Contribution to the use of dark-field electron microscopy in biology”).
In 1978, Dubochet joined EMBL in Heidelberg as a Group Leader of the Electron Microscopy Applications Group within the Division of Biological Structures( later the Biological Structures Programme). He stayed at EMBL until 1987 when he joined the University of Lausanne, where he stayed until his retirement in 2007, after which he stayed on as an honorary professor.
In 2015, Dubochet received EMBL's first Lennart Philipson Award (announced in 2014-12). On 2017-10-04, Dubochet is awarded a Nobel Prize in Chemsitry, shared equally with Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson for the development of cryo-electron microscopy which enables the determination of high-resolution structures of biomolecules in solutions. His received the prize from King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden in Stockholm, SE on 2017-12-10.

Graham Cameron was born in Edinburgh on 22 July 1951.
After initial training in psychology, Cameron spent the majority of his career working with databases. He joined EMBL in 1982 to work on the Nucleotide Sequence Data Library and was subsequently involved of the development of the Data Library into a new EMBL outstation, the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI).

Boulin was born in Thann, FR in 1948.
Between 1966 and 1969, he studied Mathematics and Physics at Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg, FR. He then competed a diplôme universitaire de technologie (DUT) in computer science at the Institut universitaire de technologie (IUT) of Belfort, FR (1969-1971). He then studied for a Masters "Electronique-Electrotechnique-Automation" at the École supérieure des sciences exactes et appliquées in Mulhouse, FR and then a DEA (diplôme d'études approfondies) in nuclear instrumentation, also at the Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg (1973-1974). He completed a doctoral thesis in the field of nuclear instrumentation (physics) at the Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg and the Institut National de Physique Nucléaire et de Physiques des Particules. His thesis was entitled "Contribution à l'étude et à la réalisation d'un processeur micro-programmable, ultra-rapide, destiné à la gestion des tâches CAMAC" (see DE 2324 P-BOU-C) in 1977.

Birnstiel was born to a Swiss father and a Brazilian mother in Brazil on 1933-07-1. His family moved to Zurich, CH, when he was 5.
Between 1952 and 1959, we attended the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich). There, he studied botany under the supervision of Albert Frey-Wyssling. His doctoral thesis, awarded in 1960, was entitled: "Über das Redoxpotential lebender und absterbender Pflanzengewebe (Tabakverbräunung)" (DOI: https://doi.org/10.3929/ethz-a-000150890).
Between 1960 and 1963, he carried out a postdoc with Professor James Bonne at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, California, US. Following this, he moved to the University of Edinburgh in the Epigenetics Research Group in the Genetics Department, having been recruited by Conrad Waddington. By the time be left Edinburgh in 1972, Birnstiel had become a professor.
In 1972, the University of Zürich offered Birnstiel a position in the university's Institute of Molecular Biology II. (The Institute of Molecular Biology I was, at this time, headed by Charles Weissmann.) Birnstiel would stay at the institute for 14 years before moving to Vienna, AT, in 1986. There, he was the founding Director of the Boehringer Institute of Molecular Pathology. He left the Institute in 1996 to return to Switzeland, where died of complications of cancer in 2014.

Edmond Baudoin was born in Nice, France, on 23 April 1942. He left school at 16 and completed his military service. After this, he trained and worked as an accountant at a luxury hotel in Nice. In his early thirties, he left accounting to draw. Through this work, he eventually started working on comic books and graphic novels. He published his first book in 1981 (“Civilisation”). As well as writing his own texts, Baudoin has collaborated with many authors, including JMG Le Clézio, Fred Vargas, Frank, Jacques Lob, L’abbé Pierre, Céline Wagner, Tahar Ben Jelloun, Philippe Chartron, Carol Vanni, Mircea Cartarescu.
His work has been rewarded with a number of prizes.
In 2015, working with the mathematician Cédric Villani, Baudoin published “Les Rêveurs lunaires” which tells the stories of Werner Heisenberg, Alan Turing, Leó Szilárd and Hugh Dowding.

Al Banchaabouchi was born in Antwerp, BE and was raised in Belgium and Morocco.
She completed her high school education and her undergraduate studies in Morocco, obtaining a Baccalaureate Diploma in 1987 and then attending the Faculty of Sciences of the University Mohammed V, in Rabat, MA where she was awarded a licentiate degree in animal biology. She then returned to Belgium. In 1993 and 1994, she studied for a DEA (diplôme d'études approfondies) in psychobiology in the laboratory of Philippe De Witte at the Université Catholique de Louvain in Louvain-la-Neuve, BE. Between 1995 and 2000, she worked in the laboratory of Peter De Deyn at the University of Antwerp, BE and obtained a PhD. Her doctoral thesis was entitled "A mouse model of renal insufficiency: Biochemical, histological and behavioural studies". She moved the the University of Puerto Rico in San Juan, PR where she worked as a postdoctoral research associate with Sandra Peña de Ortiz in the Department of Biology, where she stayed between 2001 and 2004. The project she worked on there (also with Carmen Maldonado-Vlaar) involved behavioural studies of rats (see: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.pbb.2004.09.015).
