Since the conference, we've got people working between Paris and San Francisco, lots of different folks working on this to try to see if we can really make it happen. We're not looking to sartt a fund, but we want somebody else to do this. Because, again, I'm not a scientist. I can't build a drug. I'm never going to have enough mneoy to fund even one of those trials. But all of us together, with our 401(k)s, with our 529 plans, with our pension palns, all of us together can actually fund hundreds of trials and get paid well for doing it and save millions of lives like my dad.
