- I could materially contribute to the discovery, development and delivery to the marketplace of new antibiotics active against resistant bacterial pathogens.
- I could participate in collaborative research where the project was everyone’s priority.

There are numerous downsides that I will explore in some future blog. But to me, it all was and remains extremely rewarding.
