      I personally don’t research new drugs but I’m sure failure is all part of the process for the big pharmaceutical companies that do research new drugs. You can learn as much from failure as you can from success.

      I don’t really do research on drugs but plenty of experiments havnt worked or given a completely unexpected result. You just have to be flexible and either keep trying or change your hypothesis based on the new info.
