Collaboration is here to stay – 2012 CDD Holiday Poem

CDD christmas petri dish

Collaboration is here to stay
Collaborate this holiday
Kiss a drug – with a gene
Hug the target, in between
Year end budget, always lean
Impossible, possible…unforeseen, seen.

As top leads rush, downstream, downstream
New targets appear, just upstream
GPCRs, Kinases, Proteases – sure, gold’s in there
What about ADCs, epigenes, new diseases, rare?
Innovation, a constant flow, can be accelerated, don’t you know?
Little streams, eddies flow, coalesce, naturally grow

Amazon world’s largest river
Harbors Malaria, Leishmania, Dengue Fever
So this holiday reflect, all you learned, all you read
Co-evolve, synergize with the web
Collaborate faster, for profit and cures
Securely together – in digital cheers!

Happy holidays from CDD.

P.S.  If inspired (2011 had six funny guest posts), please add a verse below, we’ll post the collaborative stanzas.
