Crowdfunding has been a godsend for getting lots of projects off the ground that otherwise may not have attracted dollars from traditional powers-that-be. So at a time when the federal dollars are under more constraint than ever, doesn't it make sense to bring that same model that has worked so well for wristwatches and rock albums to work for curing breast cancer and new methods for lung transplants? Consano allows people to browse through vetted medical research projects and then contribute funding directly to the ones they find compelling.
