In this Falling Walls Breakthrough Conversation, digital participants had the chance to engage in a live conversation with Shankar Balasubramanian. He talked about his role as Herchel Smith Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, his pioneering work on genome sequencing and the practical implications of his research.

The interview series provided an intimate personal atmosphere, in which high-level guests, speakers and panelists of the Falling Walls Science Summit 2022 talked about their individual research, career paths and experiences.
