Caldwell's fate: leading his people over unsurmountable obstacles - ones as huge as a sea of debt, that would take nothing short of a miracle to clear - crossing the vast, dangerous desert full of fanatics opposing science, leading his people up to the gate and herding them over into the Promised Land overflowing with milk, honey and dividents, peeking in but not allowed to set foot himself, his game-changing life coming to an end a moment before tasting the sweet figs, dates and Rumit's exotic beverage. His true first name is Moses.
(We have celebrated Passover.)
BC...a gentleman, friend, and advocate of science. When all of this is over....a suggestion:
Find out what his favorite charity is/was and make a contribution. Very few people could take a hit like him and keep on ticking.
One thing for sure: When Lanza walks into the podium to deliver his slightly modified speech, later today/tonight.... there is no dbout he walks with an extra spring in his footsteps... Actually he'd walk more like a bouncing baby boy!
After all, he and his small but dedicated group of world class researchers bet their sole scientific careers and livelihood, more or less, on hESCs....
Yes, they also do iPSCs, too, but the bulk of their focus the last half or so dozen years been on hESC applications....
And for a tiny company like ACT to be showing footprint in the EU, the USA, South Korea, and China?
What other comapnies --- big or small --- have such footprints, even if preliminary?
Laujhawj, like your closing question.
I can think of a couple large companies that fit that criteria.
Draw your own conclusions.
GE, Coke, Exxon Mobil, Microsoft to name a few.
Yeah I'm pumping...
Deal with it basher crew.
