Makes a change: research money arrives

Good news (oh come-on, you remember good-news) for medical researchers 

The Peter Doherty Institute at Uni Melbourne and the Royal Melbourne Hospital has US$2m for COVID-19 research donated by short-form mobile video” platform TikTok. Hard for the TikTokers not to, what with Doherty people doing short-form mobile science on the site.

Uni Sydney has $20m from the CLEARbridge Foundation, for immunotherapy research. The Foundation keeps a low-profile – it’s not even on TikTok.
