The Silent, (absent) "I" in Team
Bring yourself to this professional outing. "There is no "I" in Team" does resonate with appropriate equanimity but we can't abide its limits. If you're hired to be a part of this endeavor to cure major CNS diseases we'll need you to bring everything you have. Stand up, say it, do it; and we'll be sure to support you in your vision same as you have come to support ours.

So whatever else you may encounter as a part of the Expansion Therapeutics team, you can be sure to be both inspired and encouraged to give your curiosity a front-row seat. Above all be sure not to keep it to yourself. If you reverse Napoleon's logic, you'll have what we're after here:
