McMaster: An appeal to the greater good

Re: “HIV vaccine heads to human clinical trials,” Jan. 5

Wouldn’t it be nice if the researchers at The University of Western Ontario gave the patent rights to Western (as did Drs. Frederick Banting and Charles Best to the University of Toronto with the patent rights for insulin) to oversee the licensing agreements for manufacturing and to regulate a uniform and dependable potency of the vaccine at a minimum cost to the end user.
