Met Guy from Cancer Book
Sat next to V. Clifford Jordan on flight back from DC. (p. 217). He saw what I was reading and proceeded to tell me how it was a great book but that he was the real discoverer of Tamoxifen and not a follow on researcher as suggested. He then inscribed my copy of the book at my request and we had a nice chat about what the author had gotten right and where he was a little out of his depth. My only contribution was mentioning some of the antitrust litigation about efforts by the branded pharma companies to delay generic tamoxifen and related drugs from coming on the market.
