This is an interview with the structural biologist Heinrich Stuhrmann who joined EMBL in 1976, leading the EMBL Hamburg site. In this interview, Heinrich Stuhrmann gives an insight into his work in the field of small-angle scattering. It contains Stuhrmann's descriptions of the relation towards the other EMBL sites and especially to the DESY-campus in Hamburg. Furthermore, Heinrich Stuhrmann reflects the scientific research and the conditions of use of the technical equipment in Hamburg while he was the scientific leader, but he also speaks about his later career at the GKSS and his later work in polarised neutron scattering using tyrosine radicals.
This in an interview with Rosemary Wilson who was responsible for scientific training and later became the outreach officer at the EMBL Hamburg. In this interview, Wilson describes how she was able do define her role in the field of scientific communication. She explains the evolution of editorial processes at EMBL as she perceived them and gives some examples as well. Wilson also makes an assessment of the dynamics of communication in terms of the different EMBL sites and describes the "Night of Science" in Hamburg she helped to organize.
