The Innovators’ Choice: It takes more than a village to raise a patent and help a patient

“Without good science, there would be no innovation in the life sciences.  Without innovation, our patients and their families are not benefited. But even if you have world-class science, it, by itself, is not a recipe for success.  It also takes supportive governments, venture capital, access to data, research infrastructure, a culture that is open to collaboration and a tax structure that rewards success. ”
