Drug discovery is in no way an easy endeavor, but the rewards are huge. I love the challenge of it and the fact that every day we learn something new scientifically. What is wonderful about Aclaris is the acknowledgement, use and appreciation of the varied skills and talents that individuals bring to the organization. Teams function well when all individuals feel valued. We have that at Aclaris.
