I believe that failure is the greatest enemy of success. I learned this during my postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard. There, I joined the team of George Whiteside, an outstanding chemist and co-creator of dozens of start-ups. He showed me that what counts in science is humility combined with stubbornness. So humbly recognizing our ignorance, we boldly strive for groundbreaking discoveries – says prof. Piotr Garstecki, president and co-founder of Scope Fluidics, in the cover interview “Profesor takes the whole pot” in Forbes magazine.
