Quote: "There are two important lessons that I have learned through TMS membership and receiving this award. First, through the speeches I have given and the meetings I have attended, I learned the importance of collaborating with fellow researchers. Although we are all great minds on our own, it is only through working together that we reap the complete benefits of our individual research. Second, in preparing for speeches and writing papers, there is no substitute for hard work. No matter how difficult it seems during the process, it always eventually pays off in the end."
