Warwick University in Useful Discovery Shock!

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/5404184.stm

After reading three years of press releases like:

Warwick researchers create biodegradable mobile phone

Robots find regular teeth brushing helps them munch through 50,000 aluminium spot welds

... and other exciting inventions which are of course, now widespread, I nearly fell off my chair when I read that a Warwick scientist had invented something that was actually useful!!!

(No offence)

Might they have actually invented and (importantly for the bean-counters) patented a cure for flu, including the ‘deadly’ (to use a media cliche) bird flu?

Well done to Professor Nigel Dimmock and his team – not only might you have cured flu, you’re also the most-emailed story on BBC News Online right now.
