What do you think of the “crowd sourcing” approach to research funding taken by JDRF in the USA:
“JDRF announced a 0,000 Challenge calling for innovative ways to approach the discovery and development of a glucose-responsive insulin drug as a means to treat insulin-dependent diabetes. The challenge is open to the public.” http://asweetlife.org/a-sweet-life-staff/in-the-news/drugs-treatment/jdrf-announces-100000-challenge-for-the-development-of-glucose-responsive-insulin/19616/

Is this innovative approach to answering key research questions something DUK will be looking at in the near future?
