$3bn pledge from Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla to cure all diseses in 80years

The couple want to help eradicate all diseases in the world by the end of this century.

Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan are committing $3 billion over the next 10 years to accelerate basic scientific research, including the creation of research tools — from software to hardware to yet-undiscovered techniques — they hope will ultimately lead to scientific breakthroughs, the way the microscope and DNA sequencing have in generations past.

The goal, which they are unlikely to live to see accomplished, is to 'cure, prevent or manage all disease' in the next 80 or so years.
