Most important lesson The curiosity to understand the principles is a driving force for scientists. The scientific enthusiasm is a natural attribute of any scientist. Talent must be accompanied by hard work and patience for a success.

Funniest moment By far the most fun can be encountered during the examination of students. The winning answer: the nucleus of a hydrogen atom contains half of proton and half of neutron, because the nucleon number is equal to one.

Eye on the horizon The field of lipidomics is significantly growing and it will continue in the near future, because lipids are connected to many biological processes including several serious diseases, but we still understand very little about their biological functions. It is clear that improvements in the lipidomic analysis, such as the mass spectrometric measurements, data processing, statistical evaluation, biological interpretation of obtained data and relation to other omic approaches, are essential for the future progress in lipidomics.
