Keeping Pace With a Changing World


By Barry Hochfelder

We've kept Lee busy this month. He's also writing a piece on commercial cameras and sensors, sorting through the complexities and choices for ever-expanding academic and research applications.

Change also is prominent in the healthcare laboratory. For example, technology is making digital pathology a practical alternative to traditional microscopy. While it currently augments traditional microscopy, digital's superior viewing and analysis capabilities, combined with the increased portability of images, will gradually increase it until, perhaps, it surpasses the current method.

I opened with an adage on change, so let's close the same way. Here's one from Charles Darwin: "It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change."
