Katalin Kariko (historically undervalued by big pharma) without whom Covid vaccinations might have taken a lot longer
A lot of ai advances have been made in terms of computers visioning and indeed using the 5 senses humans use, its important to value augmentation eg how advances in ai sensing can reciprocally been applied to eg humans who have one or more of their senses impaired. MIT's Rosalind Picard has been passionate in this field for over 20 years with Affectiva co-dounder Egyptian-American Rana el Kaliouby- we asked Gemini to add some parallel references to heroines of brain augmentaion here

  1. Gemini: Katalin Karikó's work on mRNA vaccines faced an uphill battle for many years within the pharmaceutical industry. Here's a breakdown of the reasons why:

    Technical Hurdles: Early on, mRNA vaccines faced significant technical challenges. The immune system often reacted negatively to unmodified mRNA, and delivering it effectively into cells proved difficult.
    Limited Funding: Due to these technical hurdles and a lack of proven success stories, pharmaceutical companies were hesitant to invest heavily in mRNA vaccine research. Investors were more interested in areas with a proven track record and faster potential returns.
    Skepticism within the Scientific Community: The concept of mRNA vaccines was relatively new and unproven in the early stages of Karikó's research. Many scientists were skeptical about its viability, making it difficult to secure funding and collaboration.
    Here's how Karikó persevered:

    Dedication and Persistence: Despite the challenges, Karikó remained dedicated to her research. She believed in the potential of mRNA vaccines and continued her work even when funding was scarce.
    Focus on Fundamental Science: Karikó's research focused on understanding the basic biology of mRNA and how to overcome the technical hurdles. This approach laid the foundation for future advancements in mRNA technology.
    Collaboration: While facing resistance in big pharma, Karikó found collaborators outside the mainstream, including Drew Weissman, with whom she co-developed the key modifications to mRNA that made it a viable vaccine platform.
    The tide eventually turned:

    Breakthroughs: With Karikó and others' continued research, scientists made significant breakthroughs in overcoming the technical challenges of mRNA vaccines.
    Early successes: The success of mRNA vaccines in pre-clinical trials and initial human studies started to generate more interest from pharmaceutical companies.
    The COVID-19 Pandemic: The urgency of developing a vaccine for COVID-19 created a perfect storm for mRNA technology. Because of the groundwork laid by Karikó and others, mRNA vaccines were well-positioned for rapid development, proving their effectiveness and paving the way for wider acceptance.
    Karikó's story highlights the importance of basic science research and perseverance in the face of challenges. Her work on mRNA vaccines, though initially considered "unfashionable" in big pharma, has revolutionized vaccinology and has the potential to be applied to a variety of diseases.
