A Celebration of Science & Knowledge

At the recent VUB Honorary Doctorate Awards Ceremony at the University of Brussels, the focus was on “Figures That Matter.” The word “figures” had a double meaning: numbers and facts, as well as individuals and personalities. Susie and I received the award for scientific research and education in the field of myeloma. The fundamental meaning of the university’s theme for the awards was that knowledge is indeed powerful. It must be sought and communicated. And using knowledge—at all costs—really matters.
