What inspires you?

“The loyalty and faith that patients put in us to do our best for them and continue researching towards advances that will help them. This inspires me to keep researching despite the time it takes to translate any new knowledge into actual tangible patient benefits. The amazing research advances made in the past decade for neovascular AMD inspires me to think that in one lifetime it is possible to make enormous advances that influence the quality of life of many millions of people now and into the future.”
