Quote on "Innovation"

Yesterday, I wrote about how Dr. Brian J. Druker persuaded Novartis to take a chance on Gleevec – based on good science, not just the economics. That led me to a great quote from another scientist/executive, Trevor Mundel, head of Novartis' Global Drug Development Division.

He said, “Arguing about commercial value is precisely what paralyzes the industry and leads to the destruction of innovation.”
