Dr Young in Business Week
I'm always surprised to see Dr Young quoted in Business Week but he's in it frequently.
Here's the link:
and an excerpt:
"Experts increasingly see the chance of a win-win result from the combination of Chinese and American research might. That was one of the motivations for Wise Young, director of the W.M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience at Rutgers University, when he decided to set up a network of 17 clinical centers in China and train researchers to test new therapies. Born in Hong Kong, Young is a leader in the search for spinal-cord injury cures. A few years ago he had a visit from Chinese gymnast Sang Lan, who broke her neck practicing for the Goodwill Games in 1998. "She asked, if I discover the cure, how will it get back to China?" Young recalls. "I said that the only way China would get the therapy was if it actually did the clinical trials."
Young's clinical centers could help China become a leader in important new areas such as stem cells and nerve regeneration. They could also offer a way for Western companies to get their own treatments to market more quickly, Young says. Costs for conducting clinical trials in China are about one-fourth of those in the U.S. And while China was previously known for poorly regulating clinical trials, the government is beefing up standards in a bid to attract more Western companies to test drugs there."
