When I have a little kid who’s been sick, and I get them to smile — when they get to smiling, they’re getting better. And I’d say there’s plenty of rewards that we get in my business, but those little smiles are very important to me.
Early on I did a fair amount of work with vaccines, and I also was involved — in the earlier part of my career when I was engaged in research — in prevention of several of the important diseases of newborn babies, specifically group B streptococcal infections. And the work that we did is probably the most important contribution to making that disease diminish dramatically in its incidence. Seeing those things is a huge satisfaction to me, and it’s an exciting thing where you can see medical progress.
