What's the next blockbuster drug lurking just beyond the horizon? We'll have to wait and see. But Swann says it's important to support the system that makes new medical breakthroughs possible.

"I hope that people appreciate that the source for new drugs has come, and will continue to come, from a variety of sources," he says. "You have to have support for basic science, or the pipeline will dry up. And there has to be applied work for the phenomenon to continue as it has. All estates of science have an important role.
