Details About the talk

How does cancer know it's cancer? At Jay Bradner's lab, they found a molecule that might hold the answer, JQ1. But instead of patenting it and reaping the profits (as many other labs have done) — 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.
