Investigators

Principal Investigators (PI) are real heroes who quietly perform work that benefits our community, our society, our civilization.  

These medical scientists often perform their work in anonymity.  Their labor is characterized by painstaking determination and re-validation of findings, which grow into incremental accomplishments, which in turn, lead the investigator to a new, fundamental insight or discovery.

We applaud our heroes, our Principal Investigators.  Their qualities of professionalism, commitment and focus are an inspiration to all.
