Quotes and Highlights
- About technology and education. I really think you need to be educated in I.T to really be effective in today’s world. But when I got in I was a neophyte, I didn’t know anything about technology but I always had that interest in technology since my childhood. I was lucky that when I went to Boston I received 2-months training in IT before starting my career as a technical recruiter, it was very intense and I learnt a lot about different aspects of technology. In a way I was forced to have to learn technology to be a good recruiter. I then learnt that being savvy in technology is critical for most jobs today.”

This is a major problem and maybe we can help, they said. And through this research they found a molecule that they thought could potentially be a key to a cure. Unfortunately they didn’t have the resources to move forward with that discovery so they open sourced it so other researchers could use it.
