I am thrilled to be visiting China to participate once again in the Nobel Prize Inspiration Initiative. It will be an honour to share my experiences with some of China’s brightest young scientists and early-stage researchers. Most of all, I hope to encourage them to remain curious and creative in all of their scientific endeavours
