HOW CHOSE FIELD: I loved science as a child. I was always taking things apart and studying how things work.

PROUD OF: Our yet-to-be-discovered cure for diabetic kidney disease and related cancers. It will happen!

DEFINING CAREER MOMENT: In college in the early 1960's, the female head of the chemistry department said, "Unless you want to teach, switch to biology." I was totally discouraged because I excelled in chemistry, but it turned out to be a great thing.

KEYS TO SUCCESS: Perseverance, optimism, and not having a lot of preconceived notions.

LIFE LESSON: You make your own luck. When our funding ran out, I prayed for something to happen. That's when we discovered the MEG21 anti-aging cream which has financially saved us.

GREATEST PASSION: To be a great grandmother, mother, wife, and friend and at the same time, discover the drug that will help diabetics.

LEADERSHIP TIP: I don't see myself a leader, but my passion is catching.

ADVICE TO PASS ON: Don't give up. Keep hope and faith.

BEST ADVICE RECEIVED: Don't be too proud to ask for help.

FOR A LAUGH: I'm a New Yorker and love all sarcastic comedy, especially the Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the Colbert Report.
