  1. That Dow collaboration is interesting, but I still question whether or not students see what "real" industry is like. As a former Dow employee, I noticed that the blue-sky R&D group (Core R&D) seemed to be shrinking at the expense of the business-aligned R&D groups. I don't know the folks listed in the story, but I wonder if the problems originated from Core or business R&D units. I always felt a little guilty recruiting new PhD's to come work for Dow and do cutting-edge research, knowing full well that they had an 80% chance of doing routine formulation science in one of the businesses.
