The Right to Agricultural Technology – Project Syndicate

STANFORD In the 1960s, when biologist Paul Ehrlich was predicting mass starvation due to rapid population growth, plant breeder Norman Borlaug was developing the new crops and approaches to agriculture that would become mainstays of the Green Revolution. Those advances, along with other innovations in agricultural technology, are credited with preventing more than a billion deaths from starvation and improving the nutrition of the billions more people alive today Continue reading

Farmington Medical Startup Targets Hearing Loss With New Drugs – Hartford Courant

Researchers have established a startup business that could restore hearing that people have lost to construction, traffic, jet planes and even rock concerts. Frequency Therapeutics, based in Farmington and Woburn, Mass., is developing drugs that would activate certain cells, stimulating the regrowth of hair cells in the inner ear to counter “chronic noise-induced hearing loss.” “The evolution of our hearing was not meant to hang out on subway platforms or put on earbuds or go to U2 concerts,” said David Lucchino, chief executive officer of Frequency Therapeutics. “There’s a disconnect between the evolution of hearing and the industrialized world we live in.” The company is part of the University of Connecticut’s business incubation program, which aims to provide support to new business startups, and has received $32 million in financing Continue reading
