According to George Church, Professor of the Wyss Institute at Harvard, recovery and excellence are delayed by our inability to accept "uncomfortable facts". A career such as his may imply an high risk of failures, and it is even harder when you start with "bad genes and a bad environment".

George M. Church is genetics professor at Harvard Medical School, founding member of the Wyss Institute, and director of PersonalGenomes.org, the world’s only open-access information on human genomic, environmental, and trait data. Church is known for pioneering the fields of personal genomics and synthetic biology. He developed the first methods for the first genome sequence & dramatic cost reductions since then, contributing to nearly all “next generation sequencing” methods and companies. His team invented CRISPR for human stem cell genome editing and other synthetic biology technologies and applications. Church is director of IARPA & NIH BRAIN Projects and National Institutes of Health Center for Excellence in Genomic Science. His honors include Franklin Bower Laureate for Achievement in Science, the Time 100, and election to the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering.
