In this Falling Walls Breakthrough Conversation, digital participants had the chance to engage in a live conversation with Anthony Hyman, winner of the Körber European Science Prize 2022. He talked about his research on the role of phase separation in the formation of biological compartments and how it can help in treating degenerative diseases such as ALS and Alzheimer’s. 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.

The Falling Walls Breakthrough Conversations are supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and Springer Nature.
