Today's Globe: Cambridge science, marathon heart, medical reservists, generic biologics, electronic records deal
From nature walks to rocket launches to the world’s first scale model of the human genome, Cambridge celebrates its best April 21 through 29 in the Cambridge Science Festival, led by the MIT Museum.
Larry Haydu (left), 56, who had a heart attack at 43 and was almost completely sedentary until last summer, will run the Boston Marathon today.
