In the following sentece :

"This is an interesting hypothesis to investigate for developing a new cure."

In this sentece, what I want to say is that there is a particular hypothesis that is interesting to be investigated. However, in this kind of sentence, do you have to add a comma to make the sentece more clear ?

"This is an interesting hypothesis to investigate, for developing a new cure."

It seems to me to be much more clear with the comma.

    It is correct as it is; a comma would make it incorrect.
    Thanks for the answare. However, what if I write this other sentence :

    "He is an interesting candidate to investigate for a possible new president of the united states."

    In this case, it could sound like it is not "he" which is an interesting candidate to be investigated, it could sound like "he" is an interesting candidate to make an investigation about finding a new president for the united states.

    Should I say:

    "He is an interesting candidate to be investigated for a possible new president of the united states." ?

    Would the comma make the sentence incorrect ?

    "He is an interesting candidate to investigate, for a possible new president of the united states."

    Thanks.
