AbstractA young inventor shows you his solution for treatment of eurodegenerative diseases and discusses it with you to see if you will help sponsor the idea. You see some major flaws with his approach, but he will not accept any of your suggestions for simplifying and improving his solution. You are pretty sure his approach will never lead to a viable treatment being developed. Can you implement your modification of his approach? What factors, such as if you signed a non-disclosure agreement, might limit how you can move forward?
