I spent my professional career in academic Pharmacology, doing research and teaching medical students. I retired as professor from the Institute of Pharmacology in Bern (Switzerland) in 2005. Although Pharmacology remains in the center of my interests, I also took the opportunity to switch from my long-time fascination with arm-chair travelling to active travelling adventures:' Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late' (Anonymus)!
