Q: Hello 5I
Which path will be the best to follow from a growth prospective with the recent success of the mRNA COVID vaccines, the research that is going into cellular and genetic treatments of diseases and chronic conditions and cancers, the baby boomer population that probably hold a fair portion of the wealth and are hoping to stay healthier longer?
