Quotes

"We are very excited about this discovery," Burke said. "But a great deal of work lies ahead to see if this compound has the potential to serve as a less toxic treatment for fungal infections in human patients. At this point, we just have a very promising compound. Most importantly, thanks to the collaboration between these two labs, we now know where to look for solutions to this longstanding problem."
"We have demonstrated that developers can write a SMART-enabled healthcare app once and run it virtually anywhere" said Josh Mandel
