Thank you, Michaela, for the wonderful summary of Dr. Lee’s incredible talk.

An interesting topic that Dr. Lee brought up was in regard to the extensive training and collaboration that occurred during the development of Imatinib. Dr. Lee mentioned that during the process of development, many of the researchers involved took sabbaticals or went on leave to pursue further training experience. In addition, he praised the amount of collaboration that occurred between all of the groups involved in the developmental process.

I found this to be an interesting take on the use of sabbaticals and thought that it further elucidated the importance of collaboration in research. I wonder if the immense success of Imatinib will influence future researchers to adopt these unique strategies in their own studies. Further, since Imatinib has been such an important achievement for the field of Translational Medicine, I wonder what else we can take from this study and incorporate in other areas of research today?
