Today's Globe: billion-dollar biotech question, "After the Fall" award, fathers and breast cancer gene
Six weeks after Governor Deval L. Patrick captured national attention with a proposal to spend $1 billion on biomedical research, one sticky question still hangs over the plan: Who will actually get the money? Tomorrow morning Patrick (left, at the BIO International Convention) will bring together a group of about 70 state life-science leaders to help start writing the rules for how the state's $1 billion would be spent.
Boston Globe reporter Alice Dembner is among the recipients of the 2007 National Press Club Awards, the Washington-based organization announced yesterday. Dembner won the Joseph D. Ryle Award for Excellence in Writing on the Problems of Geriatrics for her three-day series "After the Fall," which was published in December. The series examined the deadly and disabling outcomes of hip fractures in the elderly.
A deadly gene's path can hide in a family tree when a woman has few aunts and older sisters, making it appear that her breast cancer struck out of nowhere when it really came from her father.
