Mid week musings
U.S. News and World Report announced today that "U.S. scientists [at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill] have decoded the structure of an entire HIV genome, a breakthrough which could improve understanding of how the virus infects humans and could lead to the development of new antiviral drugs." It's my expectation (hopefully not a pipe dream) that the decoding of the human genome and related developments such as this will lead to major healthcare advances before long. That's why I hope that the health care reform being shaped by Congress promotes health care innovation.
