Dr. Paul Chapman of Takeda Pharmaceuticals colors in the eye of a "daruma doll," a traditional Japanese doll that symbolizes good luck and perseverance. Takeda officials presented the doll to Orlando scientists, including Dr. Steven Smith (left) and Dr. Daniel Kelly (middle), who will be collaborating with the Japanese drugmaker in search of a new obesity drug.
