My role model

My dad has always been my role model.

Not just for his intelligence or sense of humor, but for his uncanny ability to combine both in order to make things more accessible to others.

I could not have been more proud to see him demonstrate this last night as he accepted the Washington University in St. Louis 2018 Chancellor’s Award for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

Watching him recap his past 40 years of research (with a hilarious violin accompaniment) really did put things in perspective.

Creating a lasting, positive impact takes patience and help from others who are willing to be in it for the long haul. It also takes a seemingly impossible skill of balancing uncertainty while focusing on a single, clear goal.

Cheers to him and everyone else who has helped build and grow Arch Oncology and YourBevCo from the beginning!
