1.  There is a backlog of 20 years of drug research…Can the financial markets be used to bring drugs to market faster?  Roger Stein thinks so.

2.  Someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in the United States every 69 seconds…  This is something that affects many of us personally.  New approaches to clinical research in this area may lead to breakthroughs soon.

3.  Artificial Stem Cell prototype developed… Researchers can recreate the essential properties of natural bone marrow which can then be used for the reproduction of stem cells at the laboratory.  Awesome!
