'Old school' medicine meets the modern

This week's news from the U.S. National Institutes of Health might have been underplayed a bit.

A "molecular library," new organizational structure and streamlined drug discovery process represent an acknowledgment by the NIH that the current system is cumbersome and so ... well, 20th century.
