+ - Former Intel CEO rips medical research

Submitted by Himuanam
Himuanam writes: Former Intel CEO Grove rips medical research community, contrasting their lack of progress with the tech industry's juggernaut of breakthroughs over the past half-century or so.

"On Sunday afternoon, Grove is unleashing a scathing critique of the nation's biomedical establishment. In a speech at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, he challenges big pharma companies, many of which haven't had an important new compound approved in ages, and academic researchers who are content with getting NIH grants and publishing research papers with little regard to whether their work leads to something that can alleviate disease, to change their ways."
