    Figure 3 shows an example of using the described strategy to automatically link the batch-growth phase and the following fed-batch phase. The auto-feed start has proven to work seamlessly, allowing for flexible study plans, multiple parallel studies, and automatic process control that is scale independent. It can be integrated into a manufacturing-scale protocol used as an assisting tool to help supervise processes.

MDMA (commonly known as the empathogen “ecstasy”) is classified as a Schedule 1 drug, which is reserved for compounds with no accepted medical use and a high abuse potential. Two researchers from Stanford, however, call for a rigorous scientific exploration of MDMA's effects to identify precisely how the drug works, the data from which could be used to develop therapeutic compounds.

Do you agree that ecstasy should be studied for its potential therapeutic benefits?
