Gotham Prize for Cancer Research
I come across a novel approach to spur cancer research ideas today. The Gotham Prize for Cancer Research is offering 1 million dollars annually to the most innovative cancer research idea. Anyone can submit an idea even without proof that it will work. A scientific panel reviews all applicants and decides if the idea is worthy of consideration. I applaud such efforts from the private community. We need more and more ideas such as this.
