Lets support Open-Source Cancer Research and encourage more technological discoveries to freely Open-Source for the benefit all of humanity
I just seen the TED Talk by Jay Brander called Open Source Cancer Research and was very impressed and thankful for his efforts. The idea of freely sharing important discoveries with the world is teaching a new way of doing business.
Should Humanity try to quickly solve the problems facing us & not just be concerned with making a profit at the expense of human life? I hope this will be a new and widely adopted practice of sharing discoveries. Realizing the importance of their work I immediately went to their website to make a donation and I found an email address. ( I wrote to them to encouraged them to consider adding a capability on their website home page for people to donate money by all major credit cards, debit cards, e check, pay pal etc. so the public can quickly support their efforts.) If you would like to support their open source sharing of their cancer discoveries you may send an email to email@example.com" or go to their website at http://bradner.dfci.harvard.edu/index.php "A doctor and a chemist, Jay Bradner hunts for new approaches to solving cancer.
(As a research scientist and instructor in medicine at Harvard and Dana Farber Cancer Institute, he and his lab are working to subvert cancer's aggressive behavior by reprogramming the cell's fundamental identity. A molecule they're working on, JQ1, might do just that. (And he’s giving it away in order to spur faster open-source drug discovery.) If you're a researcher who'd like a sample of the JQ1 molecule, contact the Bradner Lab." Quoted from TED.)
How do we quickly find the reasons for our epidemic of chronic diseases? How can we take measures to reduce our risks, change our behaviors and our societies functioning to reduce the widespread use of pesticides, food processing, dumping of toxic substances in the environment, clean up the 2000 past atomic test sites, stop engaging in war and especially stop the use of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons causing diseases
