The Markey Scholars Conference: Proceedings
colleagues in the industry. I am very jealous of the fact that they have the means to pursue very large screens and to create very large datasets. I want to be able to create this in my laboratory. Industry has done a great job in development and discovery, and academia has done a great job in hypotheses development. Both sides are crossing over into the domains of the other. The activities of the Markey Scholars are a testimonial to this process.
I believe, however, that industry will always have superior resources and organization to pursue these problems and the reasons are all obviously based on economic considerations. It is a lot different writing a RO1 and getting funded, as opposed to going after a drug that can yield perhaps a billion dollars in profit.
