To tackle the biggest problems, and to build the best science-based companies, we must explore more stories from the scientists and entrepreneurs on the benches and in the trenches of R&D. I’m a scientist and entrepreneur who is here because of a passion for scientific discovery and a desire to learn directly from peers and leaders regardless of geography.
These are stories from the cutting edge.
