Technology Transfer

Slashdot has posted this thread about making sure that technology developed in universities sees the light of day. I often complain that excellent drug targets are validated at universities and then ignored by the pharmaceutical industry. Two classic examples of this are DNA adenine methyltransferase and the viral enzyme ns1a. Chemists could probably find a way to inhibit those enzymes and thus make potent drugs. It would be nice if someone would start trying.
