    Despite their best intentions to appear "normal" and do social good, there are some businesses that are just creepy. If I've said that before (which over the years I've had the pleasure of writing this column, I'm sure I have), this one has to be the most "unusual" of the group. Now isn't that a scary thought, considering you've already read the headline?

    22 May 2015 | 2:00 am
    MIT researchers have shown that they can use a microfluidic cell-squeezing device to introduce specific antigens inside the immune system’s B cells, providing a new approach to developing and implementing antigen-presenting cell vaccines.

However, several inefficiencies have limited their translation to the clinic, and only one therapy has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. While most of these vaccines are created with dendritic…

Solve it from the capricious destruction of the incentives that inventors need to create and share their work. Save it from judges and politicians who see patents and property rights as problems. One man who wants to save our IP system is Rep. Dana…
