Excellent observation on only funding the absolutely most amazing science

Jan 21 2015 Published by under Fixing the NIH, NIH

Over at Rock Talk, by a Joel MacAuslan:

It isn’t about whether to fund only the “best” science: I really DON’T want only Isaac Newtons and Louis Pasteurs to be competitive, and to be able to spend their careers on this research. That’s because I don’t want to wait 200 years for all that “great” science to trickle through society. Fund lots and lots of very good science, and cure heart disease in 40 years, instead!
