Story by Arturo Casadevall, as told to Maryalice Yakutchik
” Since I sat in a classroom—first learning about rat poison, and later, about molecules—my world has changed drastically. The challenges facing our world have changed dramatically. But much about the way we train scientists has not. History has shown that great institutions can benefıt from reform, and science is no exception. I refuse to accept that we are doing things the best that we can for our students, for humanity.
I refuse to accept that we can’t do better. ”
