At the International Society for the Study of the Origin of Life conference in Florence, Italy, Joop Houtkooper from the University of Giessen divulged a theory that life could have originated on the asteroid Ceres.

It's not impossible, but it seems somewhat unlikely to me.

I would have to know a lot more about conditions in the interior of Ceres to do more than speculate, but I thought it an interesting hypothesis.
If nothing else, I find that the conditions most favorable to the formation of complex prebiotic chemistry are often hostile to the formation of life, itself

I also have problems with getting from "there was/is life on Ceres" (assuming for the moment this is true) and "that life on Ceres is the source of life on Earth."  Even if there is/was life on Ceres, there a lot more to showing it is the source of life on Earth.
