“I also think it is important to be bold and to tackle difficult problems, especially those that appear to be messy and unstructured.  One should not be afraid to try new things, such as moving from one field to another or working at the boundaries of different disciplines, for it is at the borders that some of the most interesting problems reside.” Eric Kandel

  1. This is part of the problem with the way funding is being given out these days. It’s not longer putting fait in a person and the cool ideas they have, but more given to a specific project, that has a high chance of success. That means that those messy and unstructured things might not get funded… What a shame 😦
