Is it possible to approach a teaching hospital where residents or fellows are interested in taking up the project with you, where they have access to a lab? Residents/Fellows are always looking for a way to get published!
Also, Bill Gates is giving out grant monies for medical research. I think this is a great idea -- many things need to be researched in alternative health field that aren't traditionally done in regular labs with sensitive equipment.
Do you know what the cost is to set up a lab with the latest equipment?
