Re: 15 yr old develops revolutionary cancer test
Sure they can cure pretty much anything, but if you invested 20 years and billions of dollars you'd want a payout too. Only solution I can see is to make pharmaceuticals a state run enterprise, but that comes with a whole other set of problems. Or if you wait a few years as biotech grows it is likely a more grassroots research initiative will come about as the cost of labs decreases and the control and tools we have increase.
