    @Snowdrop, I wouldn't assume that this research has taken money that would otherwise have been used for biomedical research. I don't know what its funding source is. But social science studies (which this could be considered to be) often draw from different funding streams than biomedical ones. I'd also expect a study like this to be pretty cheap.

    So it's my assumption that this hasn't cost us any biomedical research: and, given that it's already funded and could help to stimulate a great deal of biomedical funding, I think we should support it. We certainly have nothing to lose by supporting it at this stage, and a great deal to gain.
