Ihr Start-up geht unter die Haut (Her start-up gets under the skin)

An article about the co-founder Fabienne Hartmann-Fritsch, Project Leader of the Wyss Zurich project denovoSkin and her motivation to help young patients with burn injuries. In her own words: "Helping the little patients with burn injuries motivated me to join the research team at the Children's Hospital Zurich eleven years ago".
