Congratulations to my friend Tim for winning the Lemelson Prize yesterday.

Timothy Lu, a 27-year-old graduate student at the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology who is in his third year at Harvard Medical School, received the $30,000 Lemelson-MIT Student Prize yesterday for inventing antibacterial agents that can thwart microbes such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, which has become impervious to many drugs.

MRSA is a big problem in hospitals nowadays. What do you do when antibiotics don't work anymore? It's a scary situation to be in - and it's happening more and more frequently.

PS. Tim, if you're reading, I owe you a celebratory beer or something.

    You owe him? He's the one that just won $30,000; have him pick up the tab.
