Congratulations on receiving the 2018 Biemann Medal for your contributions to elucidating the histone code!
It’s an amazing honor. Every person who has received this award has been an incredible pioneer in the field and has made significant contributions. I am overwhelmed to have my name on the same list as theirs, and to continue deserving my place on that list, I feel that I must still achieve more!
When you said “it takes a society to raise a scientist” in your acceptance speech, what did you mean?
In any field – and especially in science – we achieve very little alone. To become independent, rigorous scientists with the vision to ask and answer important questions, we must be trained and mentored, supported and encouraged. I definitely couldn’t have become the scientist I am without that support. Even now, I’m not doing it alone; I have a fantastic research group with scientists at all levels and from all backgrounds.
