Research output: Other contribution


If science is the most communal of human endeavors, drug discovery is its pinnacle. Over the course of decades, many people work together in a cyclical process of design, create and test. They’re brought together with the shared goal: producing a single molecule, a new drug, which will improve the lives of those suffering from disease. The steps involved in discovering new medicines may be a mystery to many, but the concept of collaborative effort to produce something complete, worthwhile, and beautiful is not.
