A series of coincidences brought about to my young post-doc self a revelation: my ideal career should combine editorial work and science communication. While working as an Editor on FEBS Press and, before that, on Nature Reviews journals, I have immensely enjoyed communicating with Life Science Researchers — be it on past, current and emerging topics in biological research, or on the future of Science Policy and Publishing.
