New COVID-19 vaccines are flooding our feeds, but are any of them manufacturable at scale?

We’re bombarded every day with news about the latest miracle vaccine candidate: when it will be available, which vaccines have reached clinical trials, the stock market performance of the manufacturers, and so on.

The most powerful vaccine you haven’t heard about…

The race is on. Across the globe, researchers, scientists and CEOs are developing more than 160 vaccines, all taking aim at COVID-19.

revolutionizing drug discovery and delivery

If you had to guess how long it takes for a drug to go from an idea to your pharmacy, what would you guess? 3 years? 5 years? How about the cost? $30 million? $100 million?

why we age....

Healthcare today is reactive, retrospective, bureaucratic and expensive. It's sick care, not healthcare.

My follow-up to “It is time…”

Last week I wrote a blog titled “It is time…” expressing my personal views (and that of my team) on the topic of social justice and anti-racism. 

It is time....

I often write about abundance, bold thinking, optimism, problem-solving and gratitude mindsets… I state confidently that this can be the greatest time ever to be alive. But it can only be the greatest time if we systematically unlearn the conscious and unconscious biases that still subject so many to discrimination, prejudice, and violence. The events of this past week have shown us the[…]
