(MENAFN- Asia Times) The recent award of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine to Katalin Kariko and Drew Weissman has been noted with great press attention to the fact that the pair met many doubts in the course of their research and that their successful collaboration started in a chance meeting in a copy room. Not on a Zoom session.
Notes The Wall Street Journal :“Pair met with doubts, now win Nobel Prize.”
In my career in technology development and investing, great achievements in the face of skepticism are more common than generally believed and are the basis of my belief in the importance of promoting the work of talented, innovative individuals free to follow their instincts.
My experience has spanned management of a great laboratory – the RCA Laboratories –and private equity investment management of technology product and services companies. Throughout, I have found that great results follow great ideas from exceptionally creative individuals able to find solutions to problems others find impossible to solve.
