“I really enjoy research. I enjoy exploring and questioning, observing and listening, in order to learn more and have a better understanding of things: learning and receiving from others, as much as teaching and giving; comparing ideas, building a team and cooperating. And I dream that, at the end of the day, all the enjoyment and effort will allow us to transform reality and improve the health of those who need it the most.”
