I have said it before, and it seems even more apropos now after the Barcelona presentation, Dr. Freeman deserves to be nominated and awarded the Nobel prize for his work. I don't see how it can be disputed that what he has done has already saved many lives and will save many, many more as generics are validated and become available to millions of people worldwide who have been denied or are still being denied treatment.
The guy who developed Sofosbuvir (while working "1/8 time" on the VA dime) deserves some credit, sure---but it is Dr. Freeman's tireless efforts that have actually opened the door to access these life-saving medicines to countless people now. Hopefully some of his medical colleagues will recognize his efforts and submit his name to whatever committee considers these nominations.
