  • He tells us about his meandering path from painting in Paris to studying epigenetics in worms
  • Oded repeatedly highlights the importance of not over-planning one’s career or path in science

  • He advises young scientists not to wait until you are completely ready but to apply for new jobs as early as you can
  • Oded has a deep commitment to challenging established dogmas
  • He tells us about why he spends so much time on Twitter and his use of the #physiologicallyrelevant hashtag
