The second issue of Off the Bench, the LifeScienceStyle Magazine by Eppendorf, is here. Our new title story features the Spanish biochemist Oscar Fernandez-Capetillo, who researches the connection between DNA damage, replicative cellular stress and the development of cancer at the National Cancer Research Center (CNIO) in Madrid. Further topics in this issue include a critical look at the genome editing process CRISPR as well as the global extinction of red algae species, the source of the gelling agent agar-agar. This issue’s travel destination is the Swiss metropolis of Geneva, host to this year’s trade fair ESHRE of the Europe­an Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, held in early July. Lastly, with the kind permission of the journal Science, author Jeffrey J. McDonnell explains what authors of scientific publications may learn from Hollywood directors.

“After the many positive responses to our inaugural issue, we are very pleased to once again offer our readers valuable insights for their daily work routine with this new issue”, states Thomas Bachmann, President & CEO of the Eppendorf AG.

Gilad Evrony, M.D., Ph.D.

The annual international Eppendorf & Science Prize for Neurobiology is awarded to young scientists for their outstanding contributions to neurobiological research based on methods of molecular and cell biology. Researchers who are not older than 35 years are invited to apply by June 15, 2017. The winner and finalists are selected by a committee of independent scientists, chaired by Science’s Senior Editor, Dr. Peter Stern. The award includes a prize money of US$25,000 for the winner.

The 2016 prize was won by the Israeli-American scientist Gilad Evrony, M.D., Ph.D. from Mount Sinai Hospital (New York, USA) for his work on developing technologies to sequence and analyze the genomes of single cells from the human brain. Gilad Evrony’s research has revealed a diversity of mutations in neuronal genomes indicating that every neuron in the brain carries a unique fingerprint of somatic mutations. Such mutations can cause focal brain malformations and may have a role in other unsolved neurologic diseases. The technology also allows, for the first time, reconstruction of develop-mental lineage trees in the human brain to study how cells proliferate and migrate to build the brain.

The new Eppendorf LifeScienceStyle Magazine “Off the Bench” will be published twice a year with a varied mix of informative and entertaining topics that focus on life in the laboratory.

This new magazine joins BioNews, the science- and application-oriented magazine from Eppendorf that has been published twice yearly since 1993. “Off the Bench”, in contrast, will focus on the topic of laboratory lifestyles. In addition to interviews with personalities from science and research, the magazine offers readers a wealth of tips, information and links – such as visitor information on the city in which the next big life science trade fair will take place.

“We want to use ‘Off the Bench’ to offer readers something new – a view beyond the horizon with well-researched, entertaining articles. In the process, our goal is to create further added value for our customers and make it possible to experience our claim of being the expert and advisor in the life sciences,” says Dr. Oliver Franz, Vice President Branding and Group Communication of Eppendorf AG.

Among other things, the first issue of “Off the Bench” will acquaint readers with the work of the cell biologist Tim Gilberger and his battle against malaria. In addition, we join chef J. Kenji López-Alt in his kitchen as he creates dishes with scientific precision and sheds new light on a number of long-held cooking myths.

You can order “Off the Bench” free of charge from or subscribe to it online at The magazine’s contents are also available on the Web at
