Gotham Prize for Cancer Research

I come across a novel approach to spur cancer research ideas today. The Gotham Prize for Cancer Research is offering 1 million dollars annually to the most innovative cancer research idea. Anyone can submit an idea even without proof that it will work. A scientific panel reviews all applicants and decides if the idea is worthy of consideration. I applaud such efforts from the private community. We need more and more ideas such as this.

Hi Joe,

I'm hosting the second edition of the Cancer Research Blog Carnival and wanted to know if you'd like to submit something. More details are here.
