So at a time when the federal dollars that typically fund medical research are under more constraint than ever, doesn’t it make sense to bring that same model that has worked so well for wristwatches and rock albums to work for curing breast cancer and new methods for lung transplants? That’s what Molly Lindquist believes, so she founded a non-profit organization called Consano for allowing people to browse through vetted medical research projects at…
