Keeping the greatest chemical PVCT engineer and the greatest chemistry PhDs that understand decades of RB data? Really? You want the industries experts on RB to go away? Because they were former mgt? To be replaced by what experts? Really? The guys that know a 1000 times more than us on the chemical path resulting in a therapy? You know more than they? While we may fault those two on a business level. Dr. Scott knows the precise MOA on how the drug works and Dr. Wachter has been instrumental in changing the protocols as the industry science changed.
Many fault Eric on old protocols in the trials. Hindsight shows otherwise. Changes were made soon after the science changed.
Are both stubborn? I hope so.
Did both enable Dr.Dees? Knowing him...you did not have a choice. He ruled the company while in charge.
Does this make either less intelligent? No.
Thus you miss the point in this business. Donít fault the experts in the molecule. Fault them for being naive in business.
