People complain that there’s no cure for cancer

Good news: things in the lab are working well. Bad news: I will probably have to pay for a bunch of sequencing and electron microscopy work myself, since I spoke to the project manager & Dr. S’s budget is stretched very, very thin as it is. This is what happens when there are years upon years of budget cuts to scientific research funding. People complain that there’s no cure for cancer, or for the common cold- well, if Congress put as much money towards research as they do towards fighting wars in the Middle East, you’d see progress.
