"During my forty-year career in academia, my colleagues and I developed educational software that we used to teach physiology to medical students, graduate students, nursing students, dental students, and others. Now that I'm retired, I want to make sure that my educational software does not go to waste, to update it to run on state-of-the-art devices like the iPad, and to distribute it as widely and as inexpensively as possible."
