One of my best friends just passed away three years after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This was not my first experience with this disease, but what was new to me was the speed of the progression. In a manner of just a few months, he went from some forgetfulness, to not being able to remember his son during his wedding reception. But he still remembered me.
Some weeks ago, I had the opportunity to enjoy “Hamilton: An American Musical” in New York City. I read the musical’s inspiration, Ron Chernow’s biography “Alexander Hamilton,” and was fascinated by “forgotten" Founding Father.

In my previous blog, I addressed the concern that the United States is adrift without a science policy to secure our future, while China seems to be quickly adopting our successful research university model.
