    Interviewed by New Scientist for a special feature on Paracetamol (to be published in June 2014). In 2011 we identified the molecular mechanism of action for paracetamol, over a century after the first description of paracetamol as an analgesic compound. New Scientist contacted us to describe the mechanism of action and its implications.
