We have a story we want to tell. In fact, we have hundreds of them. The stories are about people whose lives have changed for the better. They are stories about the world around us, and how it is becoming a healthier and safer place.
Too often, the stories behind these innovations have been forgotten or lost in the passage of years, or simply never told. No one ever sat down and explained how these products for a better world came to be in the context of the human experience. Yet the stories are immensely human, from the first spark of wonder and discovery to the final product that, for some people, can change everything. Without the tireless work and commitment of academic researchers on campuses across the globe, there would be no products and no stories to tell.
