I’m So Proud of You

Graduation from Charles Drew School of Medicine in 1998

Graduation from Charles Drew School of Medicine in 1998

I’m so proud of you Robert L. Jackson, II.

My genius of a brother lives and breathes Science. He received his BS in Chemical Engineering at Stanford, his MD from the Charles Drew School of Medicine/UCLA, completed his Post Doctoral Fellowship at UCLA in Medical Molecular Pharmacology, was 1 of 5 recipients of the prestigious Hoechst Scholarship in Neurology in 1997 and a gracious and humble 2nd year preceptor at the Charles Drew School of Medicine.

His areas of expertise, or rather hobbies, are:

  • Cheminformatics
  • Bioinformatics
  • Engineering
  • Math
  • Physics
  • Quantum Physics
  • Quantum Chemistry
  • Cell Biology
  • Molecular Biology
  • Genetics

He has struggled greatly these past 10 years. He’s survived non-publication, questionable treatment at the workplace, shattering depression and  breakdowns. We’ve fought tooth and nail with IP lawyers, employment lawyers and therapists against his demise. This afternoon I once again learned the importance of perseverance and persistence and the power of believing in oneself. After all of the horrific struggles and obstacles he’s faced, all he’s ever wanted to do is receive academic recognition for his work and, hopefully, contribute to the well-being of mankind.

Today, UCLA copyrighted 1 of his many inventions which he put forth for disclosure and publication 6 years ago. The claim back then was his invention couldn’t work and no one could understand it although several departments associated with the lab he worked in actively sought a collaboration with him on this very project. That was 6 years ago…

Here’s to my little brother and his High-Throughput In-silico Screening, Refinement, Organization & Classification (HISROC) invention which is designed to find bio-active agents effective against cancer cells with 95% accuracy…against all odds.

I’m so grateful that you’re still here and already working on the Next One…

Love,

Kristi
