Elements of scientific success
FMI Director Dirk Schübeler is one of the four top scientists who were interviewed for a Novartis live.magazine article about the elements of scientific success. Schübeler expresses his concern that researchers in Switzerland – notably at the FMI – do not have access anymore to the coveted European Research Council grants and talks about the environment that the FMI offers for researchers to succeed.
