Insights from Ron

These posts reflect my experience as a research scientist and the founder of numerous biotechnology companies. They include insights into pressing scientific problems, such as combating SARS-Cov-2. I write here about the significant after-effects of COVID-19 on clinical research participation and a rise of pulmonary fibrosis. A year-end roundup of the year’s most exciting research is a popular feature – the 2020 roundup will appear in January. This year, I also offer a challenge, comparing our current moment to the Sputnik Moment in 1957, with its major shifts in science, education, and social change.
