Have you heard of the Big History Project? No? Well, prepare to be enlightened then. Recently, I was introduced to this project and have since been fascinated with it. For this blog post, I’d like to introduce you all to the Big History Project. Then, once you’ve had a chance to explore it further on your own, I’ll follow up next month with how I see it applying to Ozgene.
Well, it’s done! The hippie hair is gone and I am now sporting a new bald look just as I turn over another year. I think everyone enjoyed watching the process. As you can see in the video, I think Jacqui had the most fun as she got to do the honours. Best of all, I managed to raise over $10,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation. What a great way to help advance humanity! I highly encourage everyone to try this some time.
I believe firmly in gathering data, analysing it, and then using the information to support everything that we do at Ozgene. Our team is well versed in how this works. W. Edwards Deming once said, “Without data, you’re just another person with an opinion”. Exactly! Gathering data isn’t necessarily the problem anymore, however, measuring and applying what the data tells us can be.
A while back I decided to grow my hair long. It has been in a ponytail for some time now and if you look at my LinkedIn photo, I look nothing like that in person. For years now, my family and my staff have hounded me to change my look. The time has come for me to do exactly that. That’s right, you read that correctly. I am shaving off my hippie hair! I may not even recognise myself once it’s done, let alone anyone else. That is beside the point though. You probably want to know the “why” behind this decision so let me explain.
The team at Ozgene has over two decades of experience creating customised knockout and knock-in mice for pivotal medical research globally. Over 350 scientific publications are based on research using Ozgene mice.
