And just a quick note about this year’s Nobel Prizes:
It was announced today that three American scientists will share this year’s Nobel Prize [in Physiology or Medicine] for their work in deducing the role of telomeres, or the ends of chromosomes. Although their research was performed almost 20 years ago and was not seen at the time to have practical, medical use:
telomeres have turned out to play a role in two medical areas of vast importance, those of aging and cancer, because of their role in limiting the number of times a cell can divide.
This Nobel Prize award, in particular, highlights the great necessity for funding of basic scientific research. Funding research, while often seemingly abstract and esoteric at the time, has yielded amazing results down the road, and produced benefits unseen at the time of initial discovery. Until There’s A Cure is committed to continuing this research, in hopes that discoveries will one day provide insights into how to stop the spread of HIV and AIDS.
