When New York City lost power inِ 2003, security guards atِ Columbia University’s medical center hadِ to trawl theِ dimly lit halls toِ kick outِ allِ the lab workers.
And yet, ifِ the government shuts downِ in theِ coming days, manyِ publicly funded scientists willِ haveِ to stay home stewing asِ their clinical research goesِ stale onِ the shelves.
Dark Side ofِ Medical Research: Widespread Bias andِ Omissions] Patients areِ a precious butِ finicky resource, according toِ Leonard Scinto, a retired Harvard University neurologist.
