Sneak Peak #1: Der Lebenszyklus/ The life cycle

Welcome to the first addition of our new thread of blog posts! Every week, get a ‚Sneak Peak‘ into our scientific stories our team is now finalizing. We share a little excerpt from one of the stories and chat with the authors about the inspiration and motivation for their story, as well as the story.

This week, we chatted with our team member and scientist Dr. Denise Mueller-Dum, about her story ‚The Life Cycle‘ or ‚The life cycle‘.
