Andrew Miller

this is an interview with the molecular biologist Andrew Miller who worked for EMBL from 1975 to 1980 and who set up the EMBL outstation at Grenoble in that time. In this interview, Andrew Miller explains how his research interest changed from x-ray crystallography to the application of neutrons at the Grenoble outstation. He describes how he perceived the outstation, especially its relations to the ILL and the other scientific institutions in Grenoble, but also the scientific work that was done there at the time. Furthermore, Andrew Miller talks about the relations between Grenoble and the EMBL sites in Hamburg and Heidelberg, but he also reflects the general significance of neutron scattering for structural and molecular biology.

Eric Wieschaus

This is an interview with the evolutionary developmental biologist and Nobel Prize-winner Eric Wieschaus who was a group leader at EMBL Heidelberg between 1978 and 1981. In this interview, Eric Wieschaus describes how he became interested in flies an how he and Christiane N├╝sslein-Vollhard came from working with Walter Gehring to starting at EMBL. Furthermore, Eric Wieschaus gives an insight of his daily work at EMBL, especially concerning mutagenesis and later zygotically active lethals screening. He also describes the cooperation with the EMBL facilities and he gives a special insight into his impressions of EMBLs first DG, Sir John Kendrew.

Alan Sawyer

This is an interview with Alan Sawyer who started to work as a technical assistant at EMBL Heidelberg in 1990 in Thomas Kreis' and Eric Karsenti's group. In this interview, Alan Sawyer describes how he started working in the UK before coming to EMBL, how he developed his methods of producing antibodies at EMBL Heidelberg and how he came to work on microarrays at EMBL after 2001 as well as on one of the Core Facilities after 2008. Furthermore, this interview contains some anecdotes of Alan Sawyer's life in Heidelberg and how he perceives the process of professionalization of EMBL over time.
