2021: A Brighter Tomorrow

2020 is a year that we are ready to put behind us. It has been a challenging year for every sector on every continent. More importantly, it has been challenging for all of us on the personal front. We are participants in a rare, shared global experience. One thing that stands out to me is the resilience of the research community. Labs closed, research stalled, funding was cut or delayed, and new working methods created steep learning curves and inefficiencies. These professional issues were in addition to our personal challenges with health, children in school, vulnerable family members, and disrupted lives. Yet, the research community has adapted and pressed forward. Labs were restarted, new work schedules were implemented, and our community's essential work progressed thanks to the resilience, determination, and commitment of the professionals in the research community.

Your commitment has inspired us at VSI. Our battle cry has been that we need to be there for our customers. That has motivated our team to work through the same kinds of challenges that our customers have faced. I am grateful to the VSI team for that. One thing the pandemic has highlighted to society is the importance of medical and biological research. The world has looked to scientists to save us from this pandemic, and the scientists are delivering.

From VSI to our customers, thank you for what you do. We look forward to supporting your efforts in what we all expect to be a much brighter year in 2021. Thanks to the work of scientists!
