On June 1, 2018, we had the great honor to listen Francisco J. M. Mojica, one of the most important scientists in Spain. It is remarkable his discovery of the acquired immunity system of prokaryotes known as CRISPR, which is one of the greatest recent advances in Biology.
In a relevant talk at Instituto Cervantes of Tokyo with the collaboration of Embassy of Spain in Tokyo and Foundation Ramón Areces, Prof. Mojica could share with us his passion for science and the relevance of study Basic Science.
After, the talk, we could assist to a great dialogue between the scientist journalist Mrs. Momoko Suda and Prof. Mojica.
As a result of the dialogue, Momoko Suda has written a great article on CRISPR and Prof. Mojica. It has been released on Mainichi Shinbun, one of the most important newspaper in Japan.
