Working as a specialist in genetics

They are a charming, young and intelligent group of post-graduate students led as a research team by the extraordinary Dr. Alex Felice, professor in physiology and biochemistry at the University of Malta. While Joseph prides himself to be one of the leading scientists behind the breakthrough research on a serious genetic blood disorder, Alexandra and Jeanesse enthuse about the fact that science is fun and that there is nothing better than wanting to discover. Watch the interview with Professor Felice and three members of his extraordinary team tomorrow on the Zone.
