Mosaic celebrates its second year anniversary in March 2016. To mark this, we'll be sharing a series of 15min talks featuring Mosaic writers and stories produced in association with the inspiration and ideas series 5x15.

 

In the final talk, Alexander Masters describes his personal journey setting up an unlikely 'dating agency' to match neglected research for desperately needed drugs for rare cancers with the mega rich that might just fund it. You can find his story A Plutocratic Proposal on Mosaic and its podcast.

 

Alexander Masters is the author of Stuart: A Life Backwards, the critically acclaimed book about a homeless man called Stuart Shorter who he met while studying at Cambridge University and working in a homeless shelter. It won the Guardian First Book Award and was chosen as a World Book Night Title. He wrote the television adaptation of the book — a joint BBC/HBO venture from Sam Mendes’ studio. His latest book is The Genius in my Basement, an intimate portrait of one of the greatest mathematical prodigies of the twentieth century.
 

This talk was recorded at London's Conway Hall on 16 March 2016 as part of the 5x15-Mosaic event 'Stories from the future of medicine'.
