The illustrious Philadelphia research center last month received a three-year, $5.6 million grant from the Wellcome Trust in London to continue developing a novel anti-viral drug. "We certainly hope that this first-in-class drug we are developing will slow the progression or - even better - cure these deadly cancers," said Wistar senior scientist Troy Messick.

It was an accident, he said, and he was sorry. He was a teenage friend who had playfully aimed his father's .38-caliber pistol at me at point-blank range, said, "Bang," and pulled the trigger, sending a lead slug as big as the tip of my little finger into my left cheek, through my head and neck and out under my right ear. With no thanks to the National Rifle Association, I am, by the grace of God, alive today, with three bullet fragments still...

PLAYGROUND SAFETY. Too many preschoolers suffer broken bones, cuts and head injuries because of unsafe playgrounds.

The 22-year-old was injured with 3 minutes, 53 seconds remaining in the first period when he chased a puck into the left corner. Bergeron stopped short of the backboards, bent over, and was hit with a shoulder check by Flyers defenseman Randy Jones.
