Last month, more than 60 people attended to the exceptionnal Café des Sciences at the Broad Institute and listen to the great presentation of Dr. Baudouin Gerard and Dr. Clementine Féau, two young research scientists at the Institute. Using concrete examples of their research projects, they explained the challenges and the outcomes of the interaction between chemistry and biology and the way the Broad Institute creates a unique environment that fosters this interface. Thank you very much to the Broad for opening its beautiful facilities and offering a delicious buffet to the Café des Sciences community. Let’s do it again shortly!
