Working with Scientists Around the World
The Power of Collaboration
One of the reasons we have been so successful is because we have been able to establish productive collaborations with many scientists around the world. Whenever I attend conferences, I have the opportunity to hear other scientists present their ideas and discoveries. I have met so many terrific people just by being next to someone on a plane, or sitting in a conference room, or listening to their talks.
Good science requires keeping an open mind. By meeting researchers in a variety of fields and learning their perspectives, our work becomes infused with new ideas and energy. I think of scientific problems as puzzles that need to be solved. The more people available to work together, problem solve, brainstorm, and then conduct research, the better. I'm proud of the many collaborations and excellent relationships we've established with scientists in laboratories all over the world. The results of our research have led us to publishing over 200 scientific articles during my career, and I hope that we have been able to prolong lives of individuals with mesothelioma.
As our research continues, we continue to search for new ways to prevent the development of malignant mesothelioma, as well as help cure the people who are unfortunate enough to develop this terrible cancer.
This page is a work in progress, so I will be adding the names and images of my collaborators over the next few weeks.
