Accidental Discoveries

NOVA Online | Cancer Warrior | Accidental Discoveries: "A seemingly insignificant finding by one researcher leads to a breakthrough
discovery by another; a physician methodically pursuing the answer to a medical
conundrum over many years suddenly has a 'Eureka' moment; a scientist who
chooses to study a contaminant in his culture rather than tossing it out
stumbles upon something entirely new. Here we examine seven of medical
history's most fortuitous couplings of great minds and great luck."
