Dieter Schlüter, ETH Zürich, Switzerland:
The biggest challenge facing scientists is to not surrender in fighting the growing importance of business strategies in science.
Takashi Kato, The University of Tokyo, Japan:
My favorite piece of research is the story behind the early development of conductive polymers: the preparation of a poly(acetylene) film by serendipity and the finding of the effects of doping.
Buxing Han, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China: The best advice I have ever been given is to do original work because the time for a researcher is very limited.
