    This is an interesting article on Francis Collins from a few months after he was appointed in 2009. Maybe we can convince him to send us some of his discretionary funds.

    Apparently Dr. Mangan has communicated that there will be no increase in funding for ME in the near future.

    I find this totally unacceptable. The NIH budget is declining 1% ($320M), but we need an increase of huge multiples, from $3M per year now to $300M - $1B per year. The budget declining 1% is no excuse.

    Can anyone explain further the info below about funding decisions?
