3 million dollars on offer in an email – and not spam!
Posted by Dave Bath on 2009-06-25
I wonder how many spam-filters stopped the email I got a couple of days ago?
Inside the email was an offer of 3 million dollars (presumably US), and a "click here" link to make an application.
Was it for real – you betcha!
It was one of my newsletters from Nature:
Play your part – Help bring new multiple sclerosis treatments to market.
$3 million in funding available now for innovative research and commercial development proposals.
Who can apply?
– Academic investigators
– Seed and early stage companies.
I’m hoping that they get some good applications. MS is a nasty condition, as well as being very interesting.
And the numbers they’ll be after first? A doi list, not bank accounts.
