born June 22, 1939.

Polar Bears, Unpaved Roads, Everest Climbing and Ribosomes in Action. Lessons from Polar Bear: before hibernate they pack their ribosomes in inner sides of membranes. Use thermophilic ribosomes. Introduction of cryo-crystallography. First presentations do not get positive feedbacks because the scientific communities have said that she is fantasioner and dreamer. Bike accident -> free time -> read a lot, read about Polar Bear who pack the ribosomes to survive winter -> Idea that ribosomes can be packed regularly.

“Reading more widely than one needs to” is very important.
