Subject: Nomination of BNL's RatCAP project to the Leonardo da Vinci competition

 

To the organizers of the Leonardo da Vinci Competition: 

I would like to nominate a project from Brookhaven National Laboratory for your competition that uses particle detection for early cancer diagnosis.

Luckily, I have not had cancer but friends and relatives of mine have, and I donít know of another disease that causes so much fear in people.

I read in the press release dated May 26th, 2011 that we all pay indirectly $856 annually for cancer, so I donít understand why with all this money the incidence of cancer is increasing.  I donít mind spending $856 if I felt it was doing some good, but it doesnít seem that way.

Thatís why I was interested in your competition because I believe early detection is the best chance we have to eradicate cancer.   And when I read that it would also be open to the public and I could watch the process live via the web then I really wanted to help.

So when I read that Brookhaven National Laboratory did not plan to participate, I was surprised and donít understand why not.  Perhaps they are afraid they cannot compete, but I believe the success of this competition, and therefore the success for early cancer detection depends upon as many projects as possible being compared. 

The project I found from them, and that I am therefore nominating, is attached to this email.  It is the RatCAP project.  I am keeping it within the 15 page limit.  There are also 3 references below.
