    http://www.ted.com/talks/jay_bradne..._campaign=newsletter_weekly&utm_medium=email" At Jay Bradner's lab, they found a molecule that might hold the answer, JQ1 -- and instead of patenting JQ1, they published their findings and mailed samples to 40 other labs to work on. An inspiring look at the open-source future of medical research.

    They undertook a radical pioneering approach to share as much knowledge as early as possible with cancer research institutes around the world. As you will see in the video, this technique has already delivered results. Very cool, and very courageous... Two thumbs up, IMHO.

    Rhody... :biggrin:
