Tuesday, June 13, 2017
Georgia /// Mississippi
 

Before we hit the road this morning, we made one more stop in Atlanta to speak with Emory University’s Director of Technology Transfer, Todd Sherer, about Emory’s track record of biopharmaceutical innovation, and how the Office of Technology Transfer is helping to get promising therapeutics to patients. 

Breaking Barriers (& Bumpers)

Mississippi or bust! We are Jackson-bound in what is expected to be a tough afternoon of driving through some arduous terrain. Even in central Alabama, the ridges of the Appalachian Mountain range create a coarse and hilly road that our low-sitting Lamborghini — and even our elevated support RV — might have some trouble scaling. That, combined with the traffic pattern along the “Bloody 20” we referenced in this morning’s post, may make for a rough ride!

DISTANCE SCHEDULED THIS AFTERNOON: 291 miles


Mississippi BBQ Trail

We’re headed for the state capital of Jackson this evening, where the road crew is hoping to dig into some of this award-winning barbeque we keep hearing about.
