Please allow me to present the successor of our friend and colleague Paul Hanika, who we all held in such high esteem.
Our new editor, Dr. Stephen Sokoloff, 43, can point to both scientific and journalistic accomplishments. He is an American from Detroit, Michigan who couldn’t resist the charm of the old world. Interrupting his scientific studies with frequent travels and foreign-language courses, he finally earned his doctorate in genetics from the Max Planck Institut fur Biologie in Tubingen, W. Germany, under supervision of Prof. W. Beermann. His work has been published in “Chromosoma” and other journals.
After a post-doctorate in gene technology, he turned to a career in teaching and popular scientific writing. His articles appear in many different magazines and newspapers, some of them international. He writes a weekly environmental page for a local newspaper and prepares educational radio series for the Austrian Federal Radio Network (ORF). his university courses in my department – he teaches the evolution and manipulation of biological information – always attract a large number of students.
I am very pleased that we have found in Dr. Sokoloff a colleague with both journalistic and scientific experience. I would like to ask you to help him in his work by submitting contributions to the Newsletter
