Curing all diseases sounds like an important but ridiculously difficult goal. Priscilla Chan and her husband, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, want to do just that by 2100.

With the $3 billion they've given for the first 10 years of the project, they hope to support collaboration between different kinds of scientists to tackle disease much faster.

I think this could have hugely important outcomes, but it also makes me wonder about the agendas of powerful corporations involved in medical research.
