The collaboration between Gerald Cunha, PhD and Laurence Baskin, MD began one day approximately a quarter of a century ago when, after reading some of Dr. Cunha’s work, Dr. Baskin decided to drop in and introduce himself.

“That’s my recollection,” says Dr. Cunha “he just walked into my lab and we sat down and started talking. It was not a random thing. He had read some of my papers and decided to come after me…We started chatting and there was an immediate meeting of the minds.”
