In research, especially in academia and our universities, we have always thought we are safe. Safe to address the highest priorities of healthcare problems. Safe to develop the latest solutions to cancer and any disease we wish to study. Safe from politics. Safe from archaic policies that stymie finding cures for Alzheimer’s disease or stroke. Safe to generate nanoparticles that can both detect MRSA infections and clear them from the human body.
