Plus Cancer

It's not my intention to use this blog to tear down people and things I notice around me, so I'll just post, without comment, a part of an article I read tonight:

"Capecchi is a pioneer who really revolutionized genetic research by creating the perfect mouse model, a premier mouse that can be programmed to take on a specific disease. Then the genes in that mouse can be altered, or modified and studied, and treated with things that just might turn the disease around.

"Diabetes, cystic fibrosis, heart and neuropsychiatric diseases, even just the physiology of how the brain works, to name a few. Plus cancer."
