He will comment on the role of public/private partnerships, the criticality of international collaboration, and the value of ambitious challenge-based approaches to science, as well as individual curiosity-driven efforts. Looking forward, Harpal will highlight what he sees as some of the biggest challenges that need to be addressed, and some of the ways in which those challenges might be tackled
