My First Post

Welcome to the “Vision Blog” at  I am Dr. Åsa Lyndholm, Director of Research and Design.  When I was first asked to oversee this blog, my first thought was, “Why me? I’m a scientist, not a blogger.”  However, as I gave it some thought I realized that this blog would offer me the opportunity to speak more directly with those who have used our services or who are considering doing so, while serving as a venue for addressing some of the concerns that have been voiced recently about some of the work we do here.  To that end, I will do my best to describe that work as carefully and articulately as I can in attempt to foster a deeper understanding within the broader community of what goes on in our minds and labs.  I will also attempt to respond, if not always in as timely a manner as I’d like, to any direct questions from those of you are unfamiliar with our company and the way we operate.  I think this can be a unique venue for discourse about the scientific and ethical considerations of what we do here, and I look forward to engaging in that discourse for the betterment of our company and the communities in which we operate.  As it says in one of our less creative, though earnestly inspired taglines somewhere else on this site, “Onward Together!”
