The ribosome is the ancient and enormous molecular machine that reads genetic information on mRNA to synthesize the proteins that are essential for all life. I will talk about my own efforts to determine the structure of the ribosome, and what we learned from it. I will also talk about my career path, which involved living in three continents and switching from physics to biology.
