          Ada Yonath
          DE 2324 C-OH-1 · File · 2016-09-08
          Part of Oral Histories Programme

          In this interview, Ada Yonath from the Weizmann Institute of Science who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2009 talks about the development of her research on ribosomal crystallography. Especially her electron microscopy work together with Kevin Leonard and Sir John Kendrew is linked to the EMBL Heidelberg.

          Ernst Stelzer
          DE 2324 C-OH-12 · File · 2017-06-26
          Part of Oral Histories Programme

          This is an interview with the biophysicist Ernst Stelzer who worked at EMBL since 1983 in the physical instrumentation program and later in the cell biology and the biophysics unit. In this interview, Ernst Stelzer reflects how he started his work on confocal fluorescence microscopy, but he also explains his later microscopy and laser work, also connected to specimen preparation. Furthermore, Ernst Stelzer especially describes the challenges of instrumentation, but he also describes how the collaboration with Carl Zeiss in Jena started to bring the confocal fluorescence microscopes as a product on the market.

          Philipp Keller
          DE 2324 C-OH-17 · File · 2017-07-21
          Part of Oral Histories Programme

          This is an interview with the physicist and the computer scientist Philipp Keller who has been a graduate student since 2005 and part of the labs of Ernst Stelzer, Jochen Wittbrodt and Michael Knop at EMBL and who completed his PhD at EMBL as well. In this interview, Philipp Keller especially explains how he was able to transfer his physical understanding of systems to research at EMBL, for example concerning his research on zebrafish embryo. Philipp Keller also describes the framework conditions at the EMBL in comparison with the Janelia Research Campus where he works since 2010.

          Tanmay Bharat
          DE 2324 C-OH-32 · File · 2019-07-19
          Part of Oral Histories Programme

          This is an interview with the 2019 John Kendrew Award winner Tanmay Bharat who was a PhD student at EMBL Heidelberg from 2008 until 2012. In this interview, Tanmay Bharat describes how he started working on pathogenic viruses in John Brigg's group. He also explains why he started working on bacterial antibodies using cryo-electron tomography. Furthermore, he reflects the upcoming of personalised medicine nowadays in this interview.
