"In science, you can’t get bored" - Interview with new group leader Irma Querques

Irma Querques studied Biotechnology at the University of Bologna and received a Ph.D. at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg. Before joining the Max Perutz Labs in 2023, she worked in the the lab of Martin Jinek at the University of Zurich as a postdoctoral fellow, studying CRISPR-guided transposons. We talked to her about the medical potential of her research on transposons, what science has to do with a good TV series, and how she gave up her dream of becoming a book author to tell stories about how molecular processes work.
