Microsoft Co-Founder Beats NHL
Paul Allen is a pretty incredible man. In case you haven't heard of him, he co-founded Microsoft in the 80s and then founded the Allen Institute for Brain Science in 2003. This research center focuses on mapping genes, and Paul has "pledged $100 million to support the institute," according to seattlebizjournals.com.
Paul recently struggled with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. As of this past week, however, his cancer appears to have gone into remission. According to the Associated Press, he feels better than he has in a long time, which is great timing on Paul's part. He will be making one of his first public appearances since announcing his victory over NHL at the first annual summit for brain sciences, sponsored by Allen's very own institute.
