    The young programs hold excitement in that they are not looking in the old boxes.

    Well, maybe potentially a drug could be made... This may be a lot like the discovery in the John Flannigan lab where they found LAR would bind to CSPG and ultimately the students (Brad and Jared) in the Silver lab were able to make ISP (a peptide) that binds to the CSPG via utilizing a wedge. There's lots of steps and time along the way to make these discoveries turn into something significant and many don't turn out at all. At least Tufts is working on it. A nice find for such a young program.

      Precisely. They're not quarantined so hard into their labs NIH RO1 grant either. There's nothing more fascinating than talking to students that are allowed to experiment and test a few of their own theories. They just need to be allowed to do so with a few extra dollars in the budget and a great teacher backing them and stretching their imaginations and limits.
