The Long Run by Luke Timmerman

Antarctic explorer Ernest Shackleton, if he were alive, would appreciate biotech. Today’s scientific entrepreneurs must be ready for the “hazardous journey, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful, honor and recognition in case of success.” Today, the men and women who strive to apply science for the betterment of human health have a historic opportunity. They need stamina, and resilience, to achieve something meaningful. Biotech’s relationship with the society that sustains it has never been more tenuous.

Join host Luke Timmerman for in-depth, thought-provoking conversations with biotech newsmakers pursuing these great opportunities of the 21st century.
