Who are the people behind the ZNZ? In the next ZNZ News issues we will be asking each member of the Steering Committee to answer a few personal questions in tweets. Second in line is Prof. Dr. med. Klara Landau, Director of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University Hospital and Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Zurich

Me: Married, two grown-up kids and cute granddaughter. I like to travel and speak my languages. And I am a big fan of movies. Humor is important.

Describe your role in the ZNZ Steering Committee: I am representative of the clinician scientists. Try to make good connection between benchmark and clinical research #translationalresearch

What’s your elevator speech about the ZNZ? The ZNZ is a great platform connecting people fascinated by the brain. It fosters interaction between basic and clinical scientists.

What makes you come to work every day? I love my work, especially its diversity. From working with patients to transferring my skills to young people, it gives me #satisfaction.

What keeps you up at night? Not much, I sleep well. I don’t like being obstructed in accomplishing things important to me. But I keep trying and in the end I mostly #succeed.
