    edit - it seems all references to this incident have been removed from here - I assume there must be a reason so.....

    I think all the 'winners' had to be leaders of collaboratives with other centres. OMF and others may be part of one of the winning bids.

    Was this the 'good news this week' that you were referring to in an earlier post, @Jonathan Edwards? (Not the news that Ron Davis didn't get anything, obviously. :()

    It's good news that we have finally got this far and the 3 research centres look like worthy winners.

    However it makes you wonder when the NIH says things like they don't receive enough high quality grant applications for ME. I am sure they could easily fund other groups based on the quality of the applications.

    Anyway, it's a big chunck of change to research ME, so definitely a milestone.

    I am a little sad that the OMF / Davis group didn't get anything. I saw them as #1 candidate. @trishrhymes can you elaborate on this?

    Can the folk in the USA tell us whether there is any significance in the fact that all the winners are East Coast - 2 New York, 1 Connecticut, 1 North Carolina.

    I hope that's the case. But you'd expect Stanford to be mentioned somewhere.

    Only little bits I picked up from stuff about people preparing collaborative bids with other centres, and the mention in these announcements that each will work with a network of other researchers.

    A check against the full applicant list will confirm or deny this. Discussed in this thread

    Thanks, @BurnA. Looks like Ron, Naviaux, OMF are not part of any of the winning bids. But they do all look like really good bids, and there were only ever going to be 3 winners.
