A new show started last night called "First In Human" on the Discovery channel. They are profiling the NIH and following patients that are enrolled in studies doing the first "in human" trials.

I found it very interesting - both from an amazing science standpoint as well as the stories of these patients. It's increasing my appreciation for those who have gone before me.
