Science Unites - Religion Divides

Here's an article about my friend Mark Gluck, a Rutgers neuroscientist who organized a joint Israeli-Palestinian conference on Alzheimer's disease. It's a good example of the best science can offer: people of different backgrounds, politics, and religion joining together to solve real problems in a spirit of scientific inquiry.

Religion and ancient animosities would have kept these scientists apart. Rational and skeptical inquiry can unite them.

Ummm... a common GOAL united them. And a worthy goal it is, too.
