Science might help find a cure

I’m part of a large extended family. At times the size of my family gets very small, especially when an email lands in my inbox notifying me someone I love is ill with a disease. Not being a doctor it can make you feel helpless. Fortunately working in the tech. industry, especially Microsoft Research, can fill you with immense hope that science can breakthrough and solve hard problems; maybe even cure a disease.

According to the World Health Organization these were the top ten diseases in 2011:

Microsoft Research has published work related to these diseases. Here’s a list of searches on research.microsoft.com for some of the diseases:

HIV/AIDS

Lung cancers

Diabetes Mellitus

Science is cool but curing sick people is even better.
