Money can buy anything, even a place in the medicine Hall of Fame. Academics at Uppsala university are offering private donors the chance to name an experimental cancer drug. So, anyone willing to donate £1m to fund their work can name the treatment for neuroendocrine cancer and enter in history. Of course, if the treatment will be a success.

Fundraisers hope to cover the £2m cost of a trial in up to 20 patients of a genetically modified common cold virus, designed specifically to fight cancer, reflecting growing scientific interest in the use of such viruses to combat the disease.
