Staff Spotlight: Lauren Walters and Johnathan Brown

We asked a selection of staff, new, long-standing and those who have been here for a few years, to answer a series of questions on life here in Basel. It is a great privilege to have staff from so many different backgrounds and experiences. It is what makes us a diverse, international community.
