a: Biotechnology ~
b: motor vehicle


"Biotechnology has great benefits, but is similar to a motor vehicle: If you are irresponsible and drive intoxicated, you will have to face the consequences. We have hundreds of deaths every year on our roads, but we spare no costs in the development of the motor vehicle, its licensing or the stringency in obtaining a driver's licence. We ensure that there are measures in place for proper road infrastructure and drivers are monitored by traffic officers. Similarly any new technology requires monitoring and regulation. Everything we want is new, faster and better. Any technology will have its benefits for mankind if it is used wisely and managed well - and that was the basis of my PhD."
