    Great, i don't know if this is funding a centre that didn't get nih funds or something new but it's great that Harvard as a prestigious centre is getting this fund.
    Obviously it shows how transformational funding can be, if people actually want to see lots of good science breakIng this cursed illness.
    Well done OMF and well done community who raised the funds

    I hope VanElzakker is involved

    I think it suggests OMF really want to get things moving, I'd wondered if theyd eek out the pineapple funds over five years but I think they're hoping the community can still keep putting in significant money too, to get the momentum going, or nih will start stepping in. It's great to see, is it number 5 collaborative research centres in the USA now?

    Do we know if the Stanford data centre will link in with the NIH DMCC?
