Independence Day Round-Up

Concerns for All Scientists
New Voice Jaime Vernon reviews President Obama's press conference on Wednesday and wonders whether it is foreshadowing bad things for medical research in a guest blog over at The Intersection.

In the Lab

From Bench to Bedside
14 universities were among the top recipients of U.S. patents in 2010.

Exciting News!
The U.N. Food and Agriculture Association will officially declare rinderpest the second disease in history to be eradicated, after smallpox. Although this disease doesn't directly afflict humans, it has led to massive famines throughout history by killing livestock.

On this day in New Voices
2010 - Alissa took us on a tour of the rest of the Barresi Lab at Smith College
2009 - Matt did a round-up of all the health holidays in July, and New Voices was advocating for an increase in funding for the NIH. Just like we are today.

New Voices will be off on Monday celebrating America's birthday. Stay safe out there amongst the barbecues and fireworks - we'll see you on Tuesday!
