Bill Gates writing about our past postdoc Sofonias Tessema

Bill Gates speaks about pandemic preparedness with a pretty big voice, and we liked everything he said about our past postdoc, Sofonias Tessema. 

Sofonias was with the EPPIcenter just prior to the COVID pandemic, returning to Ethiopia to take on the program lead for the Africa Pathogen Genomics Initiative at the Africa CDC. Now he is 'just' a collaborator, but we can still be proud of everything he does.
