12 November 2021 – Maria Leptin became the fifth EMBO Director in January 2010. We spoke with Maria about how she became a scientist and her research in immunology and developmental biology. We also discussed initiatives to increase participation in EMBO Programmes across all EMBC Member States, and the unanswered scientific questions that she will leave behind as she winds down her laboratory activities to assume the presidency of the European Research Council.
