Modern medicine has done wonders to our species, but when a researcher applies for a research grant, she has to keep it small enough to be able to gain such ground.

“In the modern world, we need to take a different approach. Gone are the days when a single researcher was upset as a child when his grandmother went through the stages of Parkinson’s disease and then vowed to dedicate her life to research. and the eradication of disease. It might be a good holiday movie (all rights reserved), but not a cure.

Such a task must take into account industrial interests that go beyond traditional pharmaceutical laboratories. The latter can introduce methodical obstacles. traditional pharmaceutical companies but a completely different player. In the meantime, we need to keep operating, managing our ON and OFF states, and reinventing ourselves day by day.
