"With an iPhD you essentially have double the fun"
Jeremy Wong is a third-year iPhD student with the labs of Professors Alexandre Persat and Tom Ian Battin, respectively at EPFL’s School of Life Sciences (SV) and Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC). Hailing from Canada and with his roots in Hong Kong, Wong has made his way into biology after a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. When not in lab, Jeremy can be found watching sunsets atop mountain peaks in Valais, playing his violin and harmonica, making polymer clay miniatures, and baking cakes and cookies for his lab mates, who he considers the friendliest guinea pigs for his newest culinary experiments.
“It's our duty to share the discoveries we make”
Two EPFL scientists – Georg Fantner, associate professor in Bioengineering, and Andrew Oates, developmental biologist and Dean of the School of Life Sciences – have published an article on how open science can be further leveraged in order to share discoveries and know-how within the scientific community.
