Competing Interests

I have read the journal’s policy and the authors of this manuscript have the following competing interests: Eric Wittbrodt is an employee of AstraZeneca. Julie C. Lauffenburger has received salary support for unrestricted research grants from Sanofi and Astra Zeneca. Niteesh K. Choudhry has received unrestricted research grants from Sanofi, Astra Zeneca, Merck, CVS Health, PhRMA Foundation, the Arnold Foundation and Medisafe. He is also a consultant to and holds equity in Ontiq, Inc. This does not alter our adherence to PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
