in the February round-up of German pieces there is a special piece in the popular chemistry magazine Chemie in unserer Zeit. The editor invited me to reminisce on my career as a science writer (an earlier attempt at describing my career path, in English, is here). This is kind of related to the fact that I’m being awarded the prize for journalists and writers from the German Chemical Society (GDCh) this year. Previously, the only prize I won was a bottle of Bordeaux for spotting the book title that went on to win the Diagram Prize, so this is definitely a step up.
The other pieces published in January and February cover crystallography without crystallising the substance of interest, lab-grown meat, natural ingredients, and cell-free biotechnology.
