Do Your Duty: Enroll in Medical Research
Hank Campbell, Science 2.0
Medical research is both derided and essential. In popular television, every show that has a character doing medical research develops giant boils and body tics; it is a humor standby to show that medical research is only done by the economically desperate. In research itself, scientists trust other scientists little and they trust researchers not under the government umbrella even less. Corporations are bad.
