As a chemistry student at Brooklyn College, it's gratifying to hear that the excellent chemistry department at this college are being highlighted and appreciated. These professors are teaching the scientists of the next generation. The students in their labs are devoted to their work. Having been in Dr. Contel's lab, I am certain too that their work rivals any at the Ivies. Thanks to the Leonard Lopate show for inviting these guests. I hope CUNY and Brooklyn in general get more positive attention.

What about the new programs being discussed to change the worldwide research/deve paradigm to focus on the number of people helped rather than the number of units sold? The WHO is discussing this.

How is their research linked to pharmaceutical companies that patent their discoveries and make the drugs impossible to be sold to the poorest countries that really needed it?
Do they directly benefit form Pharmaceutical companies financial support?
